    Contrary to convention, this boardwalk does not compose itself in a manner that circumvents the natural features in the landscape it traverses, but instead aims directly towards them. The path is specifically sited with regard to the mature trees in the grove, making them an obstacle in the prescribed route, while space is given to the landscape around them. As the boardwalk meets a tree it both narrows and surrounds it, forcing the visitor to confront and carefully navigate around the intersection of the natural and the manmade. This playful inconvenience encourages participants to interact more directly with the landscape.
