以色列建築工作室Gitai Architects最新的作品,是一座名為《地屋》的極簡建築。座落在以色列內蓋夫沙漠中的拉蒙坑附近,《地屋》是一座由六平方公尺大,僅能容納兩人的觀測所。為了融入周邊環境,並避免造成不必要的浪費,該建築所使用的夯土及石材均來自附近的拉蒙坑。

A minimalist structure titled ‘Landroom’ is the latest project by Israeli studio  Gitai Architects, a two-person observatory that is constructed from rammed earth and stones from the nearby Mitzpe Ramon Crater.

這個建築是被設計為一個「避難所」,建築師希望《地屋》能在人們面臨危機時,提供一個能直視星空的通道。而實際上,在一天之中,它能扮演許多不同的角色:白天時,它能在烈日炎炎下為旅人提供蔭涼的遮蔽;到了晚上,天文愛好者可以來到此地,觀測星象。佔地僅六平方空尺,《地屋》一次僅能容納兩人,對比屋外的空曠以及頭頂星空的無垠,為空間營造出了一種親密感,卻又不會讓人感到狹窄,外方內圓的建築中有個開口,面向沙漠。讓人能在開闊的視野中尋求心靈的平靜。

The architectural piece was designed as a refuge, as “a gateway to the stars in times of crisis,” explains a statement from the firm. Its purpose fluctuates depending on the time of day: in daylight hours it provides protection from the rays of the sun, while in the evening, it exists as an observatory for those interested in astronomy. Measuring at 6 square meters in size, the ‘Landroom’ can hold a space for just two people at once. The square structure has a circular interior and opens out toward the desert. The project was built entirely from earth and sand from the nearby Ramon Crater, as well as stones found at the site.
