Watermark Entry Gate


For the gate, screen and railing at Alexander House, the imagery is nature-related with ambiguous references to clouds, water, and reflections.  Floating through this matrix are illusionistic spheres, whcih can be seen as a microcosmic view of the world or as a reference to large macrocosmic views.  The gate acts as an introduction to what lies ahead and defines the entrance or the exit to the garden.  The screen and railing act as directional elements drawing one through the garden, and act as a boundary, creating another world that surrounds a contemplative space.
