Jury’s comments

 

The main idea, that the ground protrudes like an exposed drill core, shows the soil as an important part of the water cycle.
The proposal collaborates in a subtle way with the surroundings, and is beautifully inviting with the planned walkways. The proponents have worked carefully with the design of the surrounding area and create an active place in the landscape with a number of islands with pine forest to stay in and around. The water reservoir forms its own, closed, island and as such is protected in the surrounding landscape.
