OASIS [phase one]

After observing our site through sketches, each member came up with their own ideas and precedents

Once the class set the overall guidelines during the critique, we eliminated ideas such as bird baths and benches, and made sure to stick to the following elements:
      ground plane
      circles & squares

Based on the existing pathway created by walkers, we eventually came up with a path, bordered by short, spaced out pillars. A variety of circles and rectangle stepping stones would make up the path, and several 2ft pillars would border one side halfway, then border the other side the rest of the way.

We decided that the pillars should be 2ft tall with 8in diameters, except for the four at the center of the path which would have 12in diameters to provide subtle seating.
