It looks light and simple, nice concept, however, the fact that you say its site specific, you have not really look at the brief, where the first site is given. 4*

Yes, you are right. I hadn't read the brief. I am working on another.

Looks very resistant to vandalism, compared to many other designs.

This design, as should all designs, is site specific. It is located in a neighborhood that historically is focused on the water, from the earliest settlers in the 1600s, though the East India trading, to the waterfront park and water based uses of today. The form mimics waves with a folded aluminum roof. This is held up by four canted poles and stainless cabling evoking the sailing vessels. The combed concrete seating is based on pier structures, capped with story lines and photos telling the history of the site. All materials are durable and graffiti resistant. Missing is a neighborhood bulletin board and local map providing an additional entry points into the locale. These were omitted due to flammability concerns.
