TYIN Tegnestue Architects were the ones responsible for bringing a group of students together from both Norway and Mexico to build this improvised structure.
The building was commissioned by a group of locals who wanted to promote the area for visitors. The landscape is a stunning place to visit, and many individuals were worried that it wasn't receiving the right attention. The last thing they wanted was for the site to develop for a more urban environment, so this lookout as a section for people to come to and observe the natural surroundings. A plan was not put in place to design the building, but instead the entire structure was improvised, using all of the local materials they could get their hands on.
