The Rabbit Hole
Gl. Holtegård Menagerie Competition Entry
The Baroque celebrates the human ability to control nature. Trees and paths are manicured according to strict geometric principles. Stone is carved into intricately detailed ornamental elements. Animals are plucked from their natural habitat to live in captivity.
This pavillion embraces the geometric rigor of the Baroque - circles, elipses, symmetry - but applies the principles within a digital design progression. The form is both rigid and amorphous, providing a number of profiles and reflections from the different axes disecting the garden, while the interior remains obscured by the mirrored finish.
