YO:MA CONCRETE OR BEACHES, THE DEATH AND RISE OF ARCHITECTURE. FROM SAND YOU HAVE COME. TO SAND YOU SHALL RETURN.FROM A BROAD PALETTE OF WONDROUS MATERIALS THAT IMPLODES THE LIMITATIONS OF STANDARD SOLUTIONS, YOU SHALL RISE AGAIN. THE WORLD CAN'T SUSTAIN ONE-WAY THINKING, JUST AS IT CAN'T SUSTAIN ONE-WAY CONSUMPTION, AS THIS LEAVES THE WORLD TREMBLING ON ONE LEG, CREATING A SHAKY FOUNDATION.IN THE SAME WAY THAT THE STEAK ON YOUR PLATE IS FINDING ALTERNATIVES, SO IS THE SANDWICH ELEMENT OF THE WALL. WHAT WAS ONCE LIMITED BY A GIVEN IS NOW A DIVERSE PALETTE OF OPTIONS, ALLOWING FOR FURTHER CONSIDERATIONS INTO LOCAL RESOURCES, CLIMATE, AND THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE, AND IT ALL SEEMS BEAUTIFULLY CHOREOGRAPHED AS THE VARIOUS ELEMENTS ALIGNS, REWINDING ARCHITECTURE AND THE WORLD AHEAD.

The monument maintains a distance to its surroundings while being a very big part of the culture it exist in. The ambiguity in being the autonomous entity, represented as an arc, that sits without touching and is made entirely of its surroundings, although it never becomes its surroundings.

The monument seeks to confront its contextual surrounding both as an urban layer ( a reinterpretation of the square ) and as an architectonic in- tervention that preserves a distorted memory of Venice. 

The monument acts as an 3 dimensional archive, that monitors and scans Venice into a digital form protected by the arc.The monument acts as an 3 dimensional archive, that monitors and scans Venice into a digital form protected by the arc.

The Architecture of the Monument is derived from the contextual scan, where the Monument itself becomes a reflection of its input. Input being the ornament that stems from the scan of the environment, thereby enhancing and reinterpreting the ornament as a spatial configuration.
