Build in an exceptional environment still raises questions. The Tower of London is one of these exceptional sites, it is part of British history. But then, what position does it take in facing the building.
We have chosen to leave the forefront and to step back. Our party is using the slope of Tower Hill, by establishing itself as the place to plumb the outer wall of the moat. The project consists of staggered terraces and measuring the natural slope, each connecting pedestrian paths. The goal is to maintain a vast public space that faces the castle. The project is both site and building, it appears negative due to the elements surrounding it.
