Weg mit den Alpen

Weg mit den Alpen /// the Alps, Switzerland

"Weg mit den Alpen“ is a research project, originally intended as a place somewhere in the Alps that can be used as a campsite and a cycle track in summer, and as a snowboard slope in winter.
Our plan centers on the idea of “disposing of” the Alps in favour of a better view of the Mediterranean Sea (inspired by the corresponding quote by Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist). Therefore we create our own maps, ignoring the concepts of “heights” and “mountains”. Those maps we assigned different clichéd dwellings we researched that alter to the variable slants of the Alps.
