With a small inter­ven­tion, rein­force the exist­ing icony value of the dike
Not add but insert
Expe­ri­ence the dike, a glass dike
Accom­mo­da­tion and restau­rant in rela­tion with water (insight, view, look through)
Fac­tory hall as a large machine cham­ber
Expe­ri­ence the tech­niques: walk through, along and pass by dif­fer­ent machines
Chang­ing exhi­bi­tions of sim­ply replace­able elaboration’s
The sun, wind, water and the flora stip­u­late the spa­tial structure

Durable instal­la­tion sys­tems, inter­change­able and replaceable
