Path of Perspectives
by Snøhetta

Snøhetta

Snøhetta has designed a cantilevered viewing platform made from weathering steel for a walking trail in the mountain range above Innsbruck, Austria.

Path of Perspectives introduces a series of ten architectural elements along the panorama trail in the alpine landscape that highlight the unique features of Innsbruck's spectacular Nordkette mountain range.

The 2.8-kilometer meandering panorama trail entices visitors to take a stroll up its 142-meter elevational change.

The subtle architectural interventions blend seamlessly into the spectacular landscape. Every element, from the benches to the viewing platform, marks a unique point along the trail.

Quotes from philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein are inscribed on the architectural features. The words invite visitors to take a moment and reflect, both inwardly and out over the landscape.


This project has been longlisted in the landscape project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
