A 40 metre square inverted grass pyramid, descends 7 metres below the ground, to a still black reflecting pool of water. Walking in the landscape it remains invisible, blending into the restored canals and terraces of the existing landscape and it is only when your almost upon it that you begin to see it unfold.

A Golden Section spiral is picked out in a shallow stone rill, which leads from a small square pool to the grass ramp down which you descend and watch how your awareness of the outer landscape and the sky shifts in emphasis and a quiet descends.
