“Threshold through where?”

Conceptual Site Plan of Emerald Necklace Park
This project responds to a riddle of “threshold”. The prompt is to create a permanent venue for a temporary performance in Emerald Necklace Park, Boston, which is still functional throughout the rest of the year.  

Drawing a line in the landscape, this project bridges several vantage points on the site through various spatial and ground conditions. The spatial language of peeling creates carefully carved out “framing” - the constant hiding and revealing both visually and acoustically. It explores the nuance of senses and tactility through three different scales in terms of architectural massing, seating fixture and handrails.
