The Florida Landscape is involved in the project. A site visit of typical Florida spring is planned. During the visit, the scientific data of the historical Florida landscape and the sense of feelings has been combined into watercolor drawings, which became the site of the project. The project requires an invention to be assigned to the site. 

In this project, three spaces are designed make the visitor using all five senses, to feel the spacial movement. The first one is with a huge stair, connect the water and the invention. This space is focus on the Seen. With the direct view of the landscape and architecture, visitor could develop a general sense of time changing- the shape of the trees and the architecture could immediately develop a sense of space for the visitors. Moving into the architecture, a narrow pathway has been placed. The space is designed to be mostly open, but the shadow will cover the entire space. The darkness forces the visitor to not use their eyes- but their nose and ears, which related to Smell and Hearing, to feel the sense of space. The last space is an enclosure space, without the sunlight, the visitor must find use the feeling of touching to engage in the space. With the three spaces, rather than relay on their eyes to see and feel the sense of spacial movement, the visitors are designed to use all their five senses, to feel the space.
