Latz+Partner from Kranzberg, Germany unveil plans for Mount Hiriya in Israel
From a distance, Hiriya appears as the "Mystic Mountain" in the midst of the spacious Ayalon plain. By preserving its striking silhouette from the outside, the inside becomes a landscape, an open and public mediterranean scene, in its core the fountain as the symbol for nature. In the future, the Ayalon river will meander freely, and a flat ramp will wind up to the plateau, adjusting to the existing shape. A new tree-covered terrace will support the foot of the mountain offering a wide variety of possible uses.
