Design in the civic realm demands opportunities to recognize commonality. Architecture, therefore, must provide a call and response between visitor and space. This intimate dialogue can only occur where landscape elements speak a universal language. Revelatory, Allegorical, Cosmological and Vernacular methods of design have traditionally been employed to communicate in the landscape. This project explores the method of Archetypal design as a means to avoid the culturally-dependent, and hence, esoteric language of design and so create an exoteric language more appropriate for civic space.
