Couverture des ruines archéologiques de l’abbaye de St-Maurice

Sion, Suisse

savioz fabrizzi architectes


Sion, Suisse, 2012-03-08 - L’abbaye de st-maurice s’est implanté sur ce site il y a bientôt 1500 ans. Ce site avait certainement été choisi pour la protection offerte par le rocher. protection qui s’est avérée, par les chutes de pierres, être également un danger important.


Tout au long de l’histoire, ces chutes de pierres ont eu une influence importante, elles ont provoqué d’énormes dégâts. on connaît quelques événements, par exemple 1611: c’est une chute de pierre qui conduit à la décision de déplacer l’abbaye, 1942 un bloc détruit le clocher et la nef,… ces chutes de pierres ont certainement été une constante dans l’histoire du site.

Notre projet essaie de montrer cette histoire. en suspendant dans le vide 170 tonnes de pierres, il exprime ce danger permanent qui plane sur le site.

La toiture donne à l’intérieur une ambiance calme, presque de recueillement. elle est disposée en dessus des constructions existantes, afin de garder le dialogue entre les façades et le rocher.
la toiture ‘’de pierre’’ filtre la lumière, pour donner un éclairage diffus et régulier.

Le système statique est constitué de sommiers principaux sur 3 appuis. les poutres principales sont haubanées sur 2 points d’appuis ancrés dans la paroi rocheuse. la masse des pierres disposée sur la structure permet de reprendre les efforts dus à la succion du vent et contribue à absorber l’énergie de chutes de pierres.
