Defined by a series of ice walls, the design emphasized the opportunity of multiple experiences and readings. The piece was a non-processional space that explored an architectural experience through different media and direct sensations: temperature, color, light, sound (wind) and so on. Tension and compression were created among the frozen elements. Snow and ice elegantly shaped the walls and hallways in a non-hierarchical manner that produced unexpected openings. Light and colour created different atmospheres in the spaces, which essentially remained silent, waiting to be explored.
The materialization of the design is unlimited, an assortment of enclosures and apertures that suggested a discontinuous composition with an open-ended result. Colour and the transparency of the walls convey multidimensional scenes within the configured outlook. The project described content and absence beyond time and space. It was a sequence of gestures that gave materiality to the illusion and represented an endlessly framework, as Lawrence Weiner has calls it, an obscured horizon.
