As the path diverges into the lake, the observer experiences the view from a lower point of view, changing the perception of the lake.

    rather generic comments. almost like you’re parroting a brochure. avoid terms like “visually blend” and “integrate”. describe clearly and accurately what is happening. thin about how your senses are being stimulate (or not) and write honestly about that.

    1 – why would the view be reinforced just because the drop structures blend with the natural soil?
    1 – you need a stronger word than “used”, like “controlled”?
    1 – this project is not by Linda Pollark (that’s Pollak, and maybe she was writing ABOUT it; the artist is Mary Miss).
