Authors’ Comment

Kern is an alloy-probe of a human-scale geological drill. The concept is based on the architecture theme itself, a laboratory in which to store all existing and future cores of Romania. Therefore, the shape, size and facade texture, the building is illustrated as a museum - library of cores that strives for curiosity and becomes a landmark of the town of Câmpina. The façade’s telluric dimension recalls the shape of the materials from which the core was extracted : layers of earth, stone schist.
