Barrier Analysis

point to point transversal concept drawing

Cascadilla Gorge in Ithaca, New York both inspires and has inspirations. Made of materials both natural and synthetic, is a place where human social environments and natural environments meet. Both forces excavate and generate meaning. With this intervention, the layers through which the water of Cascadilla Creek and the terrain of the constructed park are peeled back and traversed, not by force but by choice, and by choice and intention, create a new environment both natural and human.
