In between


The plaza is visually quiet. yet the urban soundscape dominates. the tree is a buffer. yet the urban doesn’t allow it to fulfill its potential. it trims and deprives of the silence a tree can offer. only the leftover-spaces, the in- betweens, endure.the in-between of the trees is inviting. the ramp that cuts the plaza slowly leads the user to pause and reflect on the new nest space surrounded with leaves and whispering wind instances if one is lucky. it takes you into the buffer zone, where you lie down, displaced from your surroundings, between silence and sound. you are left in- between.
