Genius Loci Weimar

«LICHT» represents the eternal duality between the good and evil’s forces, energy that governs all the lifestream in the universe. The protagonists of this story will be the iconographic creatures characteristic of Herderkirche: the Serpent and the Frog. Those mythological creatures will face each other in an epic battle, allegory of real life, and will make us think about the growing needs for (the) global peace.
The front of the building will be the place where this story comes to life. The wall will be diaphanous, the normal characteristics of the material will be altered giving the illusion of living in an environment strange to us, transported in a timeless story and however, so current. The victory of the Frog over the Serpent, from the Light over the Darkness, will give us breath and hope for the future.»
