Main concept

Filling the void

Key Themes

  • Striking visual on landscape
  • Movement
  • Sound
  • Human interaction with the structure

Materials

  • Timber frames of different heights at each corner of the site, decreasing in size at each point, as if in motion
  • Steel tension rods to connect and support the timber elements
  • Strips of sailcloth to wrap over the tension rods and hang down to the ground at different angles, secured with biodegradable tent pegs; openings will be made for people to enter the site where available
  • Sets of ceramic pieces to hang from sailcloth at intervals, which will create chiming sounds when they clink together in the wind

Possible enhancements

  • White LED lighting on timber frames to light up the structure and create interesting shadows at night
