We ground ourselves when we look at the horizon and we feel a sense of possibility. Outside spaces expand and contract in response to what bounds them. In our work we are always responding to openings, continuities, the sky, the land. Found conditions and borrowed views give definition to our projects. At The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, MA, at the Old Quarry residence in Guilford, CT, and the Chermayeff House in New Haven, CT, we formed the topography, planted the canopy, and shaped the horizon.
