Designed by a bunch of students from ALICE studio at EPFL in Switzerland, Evolver is a structure that was conceptualized & built as part of the Zermatt Festival, the renowned annual event for Chamber Music featuring the Berlin Philharmonics and many others. In an effort to take full advantage of the site’s extensive and astounding views, the project was strategically constructed next to the lake Stelli at an altitude of 2536m.
Its structure mainly consists of a succession of 24 rotating frames supporting an enclosed space that visitors are encouraged to enter. As he or she progresses through the space, a concealed but uninterrupted 720° movement is unravelling along a transformed panorama. This transformation occurs while inside a person is moving along a selective string of openings only to be caught peeling off a sequence of unexpected views from the original landscape.
