It meanders over the lake just a few feet above the water like a ribbon of granite and bronze with no apparent structure holding it in place — the setting for a simple amble across the water. From head on it appears to be a solid form while from the side, the individual balusters become apparent allowing for fragmented views of those passing over and the landscape beyond. It’s shear perfection. Beautifully conceived. Painstakingly detailed. And minimal to its core. I would expect nothing less from my most favorite of architects, John Pawson. Bravo!
