5. Grupo Aranea, Spain

“The ruin interests us as the intermediate state between anthropic ecosystems, strongly unstable, and natural ecosystems. When man’s action disappears, nature timidly begins its path, slowly, finding the route that will enable the reclaiming of the degraded space. We will intervene again in this landscape, but this time as managers of the ecosystem. “

“The initial lines in the sand and the building’s last remains overlap miraculously through time and media. Disregarding the weak information, the circumstantial concerns, the programmatic flotsam and jetsam, the softness of decoration, as well as the coming and going of inhabitants, the architecture remains immutably present.”

9. Tetsuo Kondo Architects, Japan

“It is a piece of architecture which exists for the woods as the forest exists for the architecture. We can not change the form of the forest but we think the various elements in a forest can become one entity in this condition.”
