Temporary Structures Constructed out of Glass Bottles Mark the Entranceway to a Festival.

Designed by Portugal-based FAHR 021.3 architects to mark the entranceway to a festival of music, art, sport and gastronomy, these impressive temporary structures are two large towers made out of 50,000 glass bottles and sheets of honeycomb cardboard. The "Glassberg" is a sensory experience for the viewer, generated by an antithesis between the massiveness of each wall represented by its volume and weight, contrasted by the subtlety and apparent fragility of the glass bottle. Via their website, "As two icebergs drifting that stood out from a single block, it reveals the grandeur of the piece that serves as a milestone and attractive object in the city and just before the climax of the festival."
