Structure / Site



A simple structural system with an 8 x 8 m ideal module is proposed. The 8 x 8 module accommodates a range of programmatic needs and responds to existing site conditions, both natural and artificial (trees, infrastructural elements, level changes…)

The structural system is imposed over the 1km length of the island. By juxtaposition, the structure and the site define the parameters of intervention. The framework provides the skeleton upon which the programme is inserted. Whilst the structure is defined and permanent, the programme should be flexible and adaptable in order to respond to changing needs.

As a result of the combined site and structure, the relationship in between artificial and natural elements is defined. A closer look at the site should allow the definition of an ‘optimal’ configuration within the limits of this intervention.
