The design draws on a geometry that evokes the sacred, transforming a barren summit into a landmark and a social encounter space. It is oriented by means of three movements: by clearing and organizing an ascending promenade; by constructing and controlling a circular envelope; and by installing a stairway that runs through the interior in a single line. The circular structure consists of a series of wooden piles arranged in crossing diagonals to form two parallel circular planes. This structure supports a metallic grille filled in with hawthorn branches gathered from the clearing of the uphill promenade.
