Project type:

The thresholds: two halves are pulled apart and set upon opposite shores, becoming frames of access to the rainforest - symbolic architectural entry ways that provide internal services.
The paths: the simplest and most honest interaction with the rainforest. Connecting the halves of the center is a network of paths, defined with simple features that present novel interactions with nature and express architectural territory. The Amazon itself becomes the central feature of the observatory.
