elements in the park

The elements that strike me and/or influence my thinking on this location are the nearby ocean waves - the surf, the boabab trees (Adansonia digitata) which are so different from the forms with which we are familiar, the palm trees which I have missed having in my vicinity for many years, the formal layout of the park which was strengthened by the first Museum building by Russell Pancoast (Collins' grandson) and the exuberant style of the architecture. The park's orientation towards the ocean along its axis is only impaired by the Rotunda and the asymmetrically placed trees. Erecting a second Rotunda shaped structure to balance the symmetry would be inappropriate. But to counterbalance the Rotunda with a transparent, open shape would be a very good option.

the sculpture

In deconstructing the historical use of geometry in closed architectural forms it is possible to use the same language to reach a completely different solution. 'Buildings defining space' - sculpture can delineate space, not needing to create a protective interior which is usually the aim of architecture. 'Building mass differential' - mass/space.
