We’d like to present to you the futuristic project by The Svetozar Andreev Studio. Svetozar and his team have made a fantastic installation on the It-Tieqa Żerqa, internationally known as the Azure Window, a symbol of the Maltese islands. Following a storm in March 2017, the arch, unfortunately, fell into the sea and there was no way to restore it. Now, Russian architects want to give this Maltese symbol a new life. The name of this project is the Heart Of Malta Project.
The Heart Of Malta is a polygonal design construction with mirrored steel faces. It blends into the landscape and has the same size and proportions as the original limestone archway. It spreads over 5,000 square meters of exhibition space laid out over five spiral floors, with a magnetic laser show in which each spiral step pictures one thousand years of the Maltese chronicle.
The designers on this project proposed the use of the latest techniques and materials available in architecture and shipbuilding so as to complement the environment of Dwejra (San Lowrenz, Gozo). In this way, the project may become a reality, while preserving the present natural coastal landscape.
The Studio officially submitted this project to the Maltese authorities at the beginning of 2019. As a punch line for this project, leading designer Svetozar Andreev stated the following:
“It will be a perfect monument and symbol of the fusion of modernity and nature, of time and history, and a testament to the tenacity of the human spirit.”
We hope that this above all monumental design will see the daylight on the Maltese shores. Indeed, it can be an open window into the future of architecture.
