Architecture History is rich with examples of formal adjustment in aid of visual correction. The strict geometry of the page adjusts to mitigate perceptual distortions in reality
The aim of this project is to subvert such "corrective distortion" though alternative, intentionally attenuative techniques best described as "correctly distortive".
Situated along the traces of the former Great California Cycleway , the project employs such techniques to create a distorted continuity in a landscape once divided.
