Based on the analysis of a precedent, Denmark Pavillion designed by BIG, the core of the project is circulation through an infinite loop. The ruleset of the loop is then broken, intersected, multiplied, and combined. The visitor center consists of three loops housing three types of program that intersect to create unique spaces. The structure runs through all dimensions, horizontally and vertically, and morphs with the existing landscape to create hills allowing for a new level of interaction and activity.
