Mill River, MA, US | 1991


The introduction of small objects to the site allowed for the close examination of the relationships between body, furniture, and landscape. Different elements were designed as means of creating perimeters and zones of interaction throughout, including the construction of an aluminum fence that delineates the residence's perimeter and landscape furniture. The materials used for constructing these elements are continuous with previous projects that question the relationship of amorphous fabric structured by steel member. These elements provide a place for seating and awnings for shelter. The manner in which the body is suspended from the structure resembles the way the fabric is stretched by the steel. The analogous relationship between the body and the furniture in equal relationship to the landscape as a whole.
