Through / Beyond / Back Again / Into the Out

Inspired by Asian and Nordic gates, Portal mediates the junction between order (a formal path) and disorder (the wild woods beyond). Hidden from view of the main path and located at the end of a long corridor of pines axially connected to the Beaux Arts garden of the former estate one encounters this structure unexpectedly. Possessing familiar and unfamiliar scale and features Portal embraces the known and unknown, comfort and fear.
