A crossing.
A clock.
A labyrinth.

A bridge to cross River Avon or a labyrinth of spatial experiences relating to water and the process of purification. Exploring symbolisms of cleansing and crossing from one land to another, linear volumes are inserted along the river to gently slow down water, extract and filter it for the proposed lido which is the key element to the scheme. This still body of water is carefully placed to contrast the natural flowing force of the river. It is in that moment that the bather can experience, the metaphor of time-pause as everything else sweeps by. A pivoting gate mechanism which acts as a harness to the flowing energy opens and closes to allow for boats to navigate.
