We were inspired by the architectural topography of the Natural History museum building and the topography found in nature.
Working with cork inspired us to keep the raw material from the Amorim factory and create a large, communal, playful seating area.
We have used 108 cork blocks, 940 x 640 x 20 cm, made from three different composites: small granulates, large granulates and dark cork, creating a topographic layout positioned in the centre of the amphitheatre.
