Located on the edge of the lake as a terminal point to the central axis, this pavilion is the starting point for crossing the water by boat. It ties in with a series of piers that follow the landscape, jutting out into the water. The built volume is interwoven with the articulated ground plane, producing continuities on many levels, and integrating the landscape and building together. The building is massed as three parallel volumes flowing through and underneath the landscape leading to the piers. These volumes hover as cantilevers over the lake. The fluid experience of passing through the landscape continues inside, where all zones are generous and interconnected. Inside, the use of ramps enables visitors to move up to the mezzanine level and out onto the roof of the building. Through its materiality, the building again manifests itself as an extension of the ground with its floors and interior walls made from concrete and bronze: an expression of local identity.
