Plan

The design for this space of contemplation centers on the possibility that materials can be alive. We have treated architectural matter in a way that makes the building appear vulnerable.

The glass is treated with a cloudy substrate that fades from solid to liquid while the stone ceiling cracks lending an experience of strange weakness to the monolith that floats above.

The glass box enclosure is lifted from the ground and accessed through a broken stone.
