Abstract

Wood is a part of the story of mankind, part of our cultural and social evolution. Wood is an expression of primordial architecture based on two fundamental structural principles: columns and architraves, vertical and horizontal. If this is an antique idea, then it is still relevant for the future, where even today, research and innovation still departs from the primordial gesture of those ancestors, who used a simple tree trunk to cross a river. In this respect, wood remains the best material in the realisation of structures with the purpose of connection, walkways, such as that of the “Via Sacra” connecting the Valley of the Temples (declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997) which today, exists to instead interrupt that part of the Complex near to the Temple of Ercole and that of Giove: with an invasive public pathway. The objective of the pathway, rather, should be to maximise the experience of the ancient Akragas (founded in 582 bC, a work of the colony of Gela and Rodi). Unifying the two pathways into one, would allow visitors to enjoy a more sympathetic experience of these internal Complex areas. A further answer would also be to realise a simple walkway, employing modern technology (such as gluam, capable of weathering-well and achieving a bridge span) whilst maintaining a thin, less obtrusive structure. Utilising the benefits of an ancient material, such as wood.
