Some description: "Although the buildings are experienced as individual elements, they are connected through the relationship they each have with the landscape. The buildings are specifically situated into the site at certain points to illustrate specific qualities of the dynamic landscape. One enters the site along the major axis of the gardens through the gate building which creates a public meeting space and frames views of the gardens. The exhibition center seems to extend past the landscape to showcase the lake and the views of the South Hill. The greenhouse, at the peak of the hill, connects various landscape features due to its central location."
