Today’s globally growing tourist industry demands to bring people fast and efficiently to high altitudes to do sports activities like skiing and hiking. For the development of alpine rural landscapes, cable car is the most ideal infrastructural system for this transportation. Located in the alpine region of Italy, reaching from the town of Cortina d’Ampezzo to the rural landscape called Cinque Torri, this project proposes a cableway consisting of three stations and two columns placed at specific points in the topography. Leaving from the meadow at the edge of the town, changing at the intermediate station above the forest and arriving at the top station carved in the rock with a small restaurant overlooking the mountainous scenery.
