Salina National park watchtower
Sečovlje Saltworks, Slovenia
The Sečovlje Saltworks is the largest Slovenian salt evaporation pond. Along with the Strunjan Saltworks, they are the northernmost Mediterranean saltworks and one of the few where salt is still produced in a traditional way, as well as a wetland of international importance and a breeding place for waterbirds. The competition entry required a new intervention in a ruined saltwork house. The solution is a watchtower made of a wooden construction in the shape of a triangle with smaller reflective triangles resembling salt extracts.
