Inspired by ink dissipation, the project reflects three experiences: anticipation, convergence and dissipation. One approaches the project through a compressed path that wraps around the hill, anticipating what is to come. He or she then reaches the center of the project, converging with the site. Finally he or she is presented with the possibilities of multiple site-specific classrooms, allowing them to dissipate and explore different natural aspects of the Duck Hollow site. The classrooms are each composed of wall units housing all necessary amenities, opening up the classroom space and allowing the surrounding environment to take priority within the learning spaces.
