Appreciation towards Orma architettura for providing the following description:


The project of a wooden school’s playground for Evisa village is what could be called a «a far-reaching micro-project». It is a growing specific object as we discover it along the way. Indeed, it has a trans-generational vocation. It must be a place of shelter, memory, and memories. But it also has to be a learning subject telling about surroundings, a story and a know-how.

Evisa is a stone village, located at the foot of the Sevi pass, 830m above sea level, 70 km far from Ajaccio. As many inland villages, it has many economic and especially social and environnemental stakes reflecting the core of Corsica’s future sustainable developpement issues. Its architecture is characterized by massive buildings built through a very simple volumetric structure immersed in a forest of chestnut trees and laricio pines.

The school’s covered playground is at the back of the courtyard which makes it looking like a multi-entenary chestnut tree where the power of an oversized trunk by time is supporting an imposing foliage. Corsican wood industry remains under-developed, with value-added limited, largely due to the lack of lumber kiln which could allow immediate use of the material. This project intends to provide immediate responses to this matter. New construction processes take therefore into account, for the first time in the corsican wood industry’history, the use of a glue-laminated wood with endemic corsican pine.

All stakeholders in the wood supplychain are certified PEFC starting with Evisa’s own certified public forest: a successful model of a short circulation.
