The Glass Pavilion proposal is a reformulation and rematerialization of the temple carried out by Donato Bramante in Rome known as San Pietro in Montorio. Bramante's temple synthesizes in an austere and compact way notions of harmony, unity of the parts and whole as few buildings in history.
A circular organizational base has three apparent levels of which only one is accessible. A basement or buried crypt, a ground floor (accessible) where an altar is positioned and an inaccessible first level that serves as a coronation of the whole and as a way to obtain the desired proportion.
The Glass Pavilion seeks to reconstruct the ideas of San Pietro according to three central aspects. The proportion of the parts, the helical tendency of the whole and the inner experience.
