#135 The Courtyard in the Nature Reserve


B12_#135 // Rehearsing Realities // Emma Colthurst 

The Courtyard, a niche of serenity carved out within urban sprawl is transported to the Nature Reserve. Here reality and imagination collide through the possibilities of the threshold. The transition of the bridge, the connecting arches, the open door, and the distorted window facilitate the wandering visitors mind as they envision personal glimpses of the peace beyond. The protected trees and inhabitant birds of the reserve cross into the urban oasis, in exchange of the drifting urban explorer searching for tranquillity
