Schuylkill River Park Installations
The site is analyzed through its topography and qualities found in abstract geometries, convergence points, clear divisions between the natural and built environment, and a phenomenon involving the sun, clouds, and water. Two installations based on these analyses are proposed with one revealing the geometric and compositional qualities of the site and the other illustrating the phenomenon via an interactive element.
Located by the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, PA.
Site Analysis: Views
consists of a series of panels through which to view a strong division in the site. one set mirrors the man-made, constructed side on the west while the other set highlights the natural, living side on the east.
Site Analysis: Phenomenon
consists of a simulation of the relationship between clouds, sun, and the river. visitors engage with the installation by walking on the reflective “water” and moving translucent “clouds” to create different spaces in light.
