Vanishing Vocabulary – Final Presentation Boards – Site

The terrain of original site plan (top) was modified in two locations. It was terraced off into steep terraces at zone 1 (notated by “A”), the location of the museum and the place where the main road enters between two dramatically sloped mounds. It was also terraced, but more gradually, at a site just between zone 2 and 3 (notated by “B”), near the river, where the lodging is placed.

The complete site plan (main image) includes the forms of these two structures, and shows the topography-conforming path accented by the string of architectural intervention moments stretched between. The lightened portions along this path are the places where the interventions would occur.

(Off of the site plan are photos representing the primary conditions of the existing site – open field, wooded path, and views out.)
