The idea of the sanctuary was born from the site itself. In homage to the site’s previous history as an airport the genesis of the concept was the idea of earth flying over water mirroring the constant motion of the waves lapping against the shore. This drove the selection of Corten steel and wood for the earth portion with green tinted glass and white steel to represent the water.
