WATCH: Dwejra’s Azure Window re-imagined as a steel structure by Russian
We weren't expecting this...

Russian architect Svetozar Andreev says he wants to develop a polygonal form with mirrored steel faces to replace the collapsed window, which fell into the sea following a ferocious storm in March 2017. Ok, then…

The project, which would include five spiral floors of 5,000 metres of exhibition space, has been dubbed ‘The Heart of Malta’. Andreev has revealed that, “It will blend into the landscape, and have the same size and proportion as the original limestone arch.”

The plan is to give the structure new life by creating a stunning exhibition space that will attract a number of tourists, as well as compensating for the loss of such a magnificent structure, so fond of by the Maltese. Andreev released a video with the plans of the proposed structure, showing what the ultimate structure will look like.
