The geometric shapes that form the walkways and bath houses that line these natural hot springs reveal areas never before accesible in this landscape.

The angled columns, steel cable overhead, and narrow passageway leading to the edge of a cliff create tension in this rugged terrain.

Parallel wood elements, along with a single steel rail, make a path amongst the hillsides that let visitors interact with the landscape in different ways.

  1. 5 – good, and I would add that the geometric shapes reveal how the earth cracks open to release the hot water.
    5 – the words tension and cliff work well together
    3 – allowing visitors to “interact with the landscape in different ways” is a very general statement. Be specific and ask yourself what the path reveals about the landscape – it seems to be floating on top of the ground cover across the hillside.
