THEATRE + EXHIBIT CENTER Tervasaari Island, Helsinki , Finland

shaping the space the space shapingshaping the space

The Tervasaari Island Waterfront Project attempts to add a waterfront offering which provides relief from the congestion of busy city life. Site’s isolation from mainland makes it an ideal place to develop a retreat close to nature and water. The procession of open, closed, semiopen and closed spaces along the main entrance hall creates a spacial rhythm while one completes their journey from one end of the building to another.

SKY-VIEWING ENCLOSURE Duckpond, Blacksburg, VA

The sky-viewing enclosure provides a new lens to focus on the sky. This is achieved by using an inverted triangular window which blurs the surrounding landscape when eyes follow the line of sight from bottom to top.
