Manipulation of the Landscape

This project explored the the physical manipulation of the landscape through the intervention of architecture. The project was sited on an imagined natural landscape with a consistent slope. The simple architectural element of the wall acts as the initial force upon the landscape. The action of the wall cutting into the topography begins the distortion of the existing contours, and from there the contours fall back down the slope eventually easing back into the natural contours of the site. The second architectural element complements the creation of the new contours.
