On a much less literal level, most of the architectural elements that have been added are fluid, supple and light. They encourage movement, as free and easy as a body in water. On the ground floor, for example, the walls form long, wavy curves. Sometimes they change shape to accommodate display cases or shelves, or to allow a moulded bench to emerge. To give another example, the main staircase, created to link
the ground floor and the lower level (the pool level), spreads like a sloping ribbon. The movement is natural, like a cascade. And the huts
twist and turn as they rise up towards the light.
We want this architectural intervention to be at once very decisive and very gentle and enfolding.
