This 80-acre island reveals how large scale projects such as an island can offer many design opportunities such as this pathway through the trees.

  1. 3 – what is it about the promenade that reveals the view? Is it the fact that it’s on the edge of a cliff? Is it because it is not straight? your wording is awkward – a view is not something that “comes from” a landscape, but you can have a view OF a landscape
    5 – good, you are getting the idea but wording is also awkward; a better way to say this might have been “the softscape on this 39th floor terrace reveals moments of relief within a seemingly endless vertical hardscape” (making direct reference to the buildings in your image).
    3 – be more specific; an 80-acre island does not reveal much other than the fact that it is 80-acres and it’s an island; your image suggests that this statement should be more about how the wooden pathway winding through the trees reveals the lush carpet of greenery covering the ground and the verticality of the trees – contrast is used as a device to reveal something.
