Archtector Svetozar Andreev Fuses Nature And Modernity To Create Mirrored Steel Form On Malta

In collaboration with Elena Britanishskaya, the architect Svetozar Andreev, proposes to transform Malta‘s collapsed ‘Azure Window’ into a steel exhibition space. Tieqa Żerqa, more popularly known as the Azure Window, was an icon of the Maltese islands, however, following a storm in march of 2017, the arch collapsed into the sea. The ‘Heart of Malta’ project plans to create a new visual landmark by creating a polygonal architectural form with mirrored steel faces, which will blend into the landscape and have the same size and proportions as the original limestone arch.

“It-Tieqa Żerqa, more popularly known as the Azure Window, was an icon of the Maltese islands. Following a storm in March of 2017, the arch collapsed into the sea, and there was no way to restore it. However, we have a plan to give this symbol a new life: THE HEART OF MALTA is a polygonal architectural form with mirrored steel faces, which will blend into the landscape, and have the same size and proportions as the original limestone arch. Within this form we have designed over 5,000 square meters of exhibition space laid out over five spiral floors, with a dynamic laser show in which each spiral step represents one thousand years of Maltese history. 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.”
