Ripple | Exterior Architecture
Aselton Park, 2019
The design for Ripple is inspired by the waves that flow from the harbor. At the edge of this hill, nestled under the tree, the rippling of sound, light and water gather. They bounce back towards the harbor to complete the cycle. The visitor becomes a part of the natural cycle. It is a place to rest. It is a place to ponder where you have come from and where along this path you will travel to next.
Ripple is a partner piece with Sea Saw, down the hill, by the dinghy dock. Each create an opportunity to engage with the motion and energy of the harbor.
I have always been drawn to folding materials and to how fascinating it is that a flat material that has little strength, when folded, can become a shape strong enough to carry
weight. Ripple is derived from the simple folding of sheet of steel. The forms are created to invite sitting and leaning —resting on the forms or on the grass —listening, looking –
even posing! Have fun making them your own.
