Appearing Rooms Forrest Place

Laid out in a 3 × 3 square grid, a programmed water pavilion creates a labyrinth of fluctuating water walls, constantly subdividing the plan into various combinations of nine appearing and disappearing rooms. The water walls randomly rise and fall, defining different configurations of the space by changing shape and appearance every ten seconds. Moving from square to square, visitors find themselves enclosed in everchanging interior spaces or suddenly pushed to the exterior, without any means to control the confinement or exclusion.
