The Legend of Zelda is a mythic saga in the history of video games, in which Link’s journey is full of sacrifices and bravery on his quest to defeat the evil in the Hyrule Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild is an acclaimed title for its excellent gameplay, beautiful landscapes and architecture. Therefore, The Hyrule Pavilion reimagines this video game as a real-life building to honour the reincarnations of the Hero, the Princess and the sacrifice of the four Hyrule Warriors who gave their lives and souls to defeat Ganon.

The proposal is based on a central space where the Master Sword would be placed. This area is illuminated by an Oculus with the Sheikah Symbol on top, which cast a shadow over the visitors as a reminder of the support provided by the Sheikah race against Ganon. Four structural walls surround and unify this space. Each of them represents a warrior and its race: Urbossa (Gerudo), Mipha (Zora), Daruk (Goron) and Revali (Orni), which are considered the pillars of the realm.

The surroundings are dedicated to regional artifacts and the statues of the immortal heroes, as a symbol of protection and glory.
