Walking on Water - August 2016 - 2B Studio

Situated in Northern Ontario French River Country, Walking on Water is a riverside lodge and laboratory for the reinsertion of endangered Great Lakes fish species. Looking to explore the capabilities of the typology of a wooden boat dock, the project hinges on a network of wooden dock-bridges that spans across the site, bordering along the rocky riverside and connecting the various buildings.

As visitors and residents travel across the bridges, they will experience an ebbing of natural and manmade conditions through the site, as the path guides them along and through ground, out far into the water, under roof tops, and up a cliff to the fire pit.
