"Alice Studio, a group of students from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne has built a spiraling viewing platform in Zermatt, Switzerland. located on the edge of Lake Stelli, the 'Evolver' enables visitors to engage with and observe the panoramic landscape in a new and responsive manner."

"Composed of 24 wooden frames that serve as the structural spine of the project, the design encases a continuous 720 degree route. An uninterrupted slit travels along the tubular path, providing a framed view of the site which changes according to the visitor's vantage point. Open wooden slats render the structure completely exposed to the elements, resulting in a viewing station that is holistically experiential and well-connected to its landscape."
