The project appears to visitors firstly as a volume floating a story above the water. This illusion, which reinterprets the poetics of "floating" and of "masks", is achieved by cantilevering the volume off a structural core that is encased in mirrors. Seemingly devoid of sectional variation, the form appears to be one of a static architecture, but beneath its conservatism, lies a machine of change, adaptations for the unexpected.
