Entry Description: The goal of project is to capture this experience with minimal interference to its surroundings. We used scaffolding like structure to not take away focus from the city; rather the structure is designed to be invisible from the distance. The proposed structure would allow visitors to relax, play, watch, listen, sit and mostly importantly experience the city as much as walking around. The structure composed of five different modules, Steps, Stage, Void, Enclosed space, and Viewpoint.
