Reading pond: an intimate space within a public context



The proposal is for a reading & thinking pond, an intimate space within a public context where water meets concrete and wood, and the passing of time can be observed.

The idea came from an initial model of a concrete fountain and models of an artist’s studio.

I merged the qualities from the models to create a small reading space that included materiality and a water element.

There are two iterations: one made out of concrete and the other made out of wood with a concrete fountain.
