Great Isador Platform

The Great Isador peak is centrally located in the Stubai Glacier in Tyrol Austria. The recently constructed platform offers mountain climbers the first opportunity at a truly panoramic vision of the glacier landscape. Climbers and adventurous tourists alike get a moment of clarity and peace in the midst of a grueling climb more than 3200 metres above sea level. The team at Aste Architecture wanted to design a platform that interacted with the landscape as much as the landscape interacted with the platform, reflecting and influencing the other. Playing by Mother Nature's rules, the weather resistance steel platform was erected exclusively by helicopter.

Human beings have wonderful imaginations.
