“The Gardens of Eden “

when we first had our site trip. The first thing that cought my eye was the area, Although the mills was fasinating I was a bit bumbed by the location. Although it seemed interesting for me how ppl manevered from one are to another … As I walked around the site I was trying to look for something that was inspiring. It wasnt easy “ =). the site sits in island. Which is kind of in the middle of two places. I realised that people living in north side had to pass by the man made island through the mills and then off to the highway. The area seemed quait. There was a stodio there who by complete honesty wouldnt even notice it becuz of the noise-less they tend to achieve.
Choosing the best area for my building project.
I wanted a location that had a good view or more importantly something that had to do with the history of the place. Choosing a perpose for the muesem wasnt easy. I didnt really the history of it was that interesting “ no effence “. so what do what to do ? ,, I started mapping the site adding things to the drawings that I picked up on my way there. I realise I was really focusing on the landscape of the area. Rather than drawing lines and researching its history. So I thought why not do something with plants , better yet reeds! Since it was right next to my location proposal. After researching I found out that reeds can actually be in use. One thing is that its used to filter water. So here you have it folks! My muesem is about filterization with the use of none the only reeds.

Gardens of eden? Magical ? .. thats one discribtion…
