exhibiting at this year’s venice architecture biennale, ‘cherry tree blossom’ by madrid-based architectural office amid.cero9 (cristina díaz moreno and efrén garcía grinda) is a structure set in the middle of the jerte valley in spain. the site is unique for its single-species cherry orchards that transform the landscape every year.

the lightweight roof of ‘cherry tree blossom’ is composed of fabric and a three-dimensional structural system made of slender interwoven steel. the resulting form is an organic ‘modern chapel’ with bevelled openings punctured throughout the surface. light enters the shelter in streams, creating a cave-like experience for its inhabitants.
