Cave systems are a hidden, parallel experience to what occurs at the surface, two worlds separated by mere feet of earth yet rarely meeting. The threshold between above and below ground becomes the most ambiguous yet powerful moment of the site.

This entry attempts to give physical and spatial presence to this moment through a suspended stair, transitioning geometries from the natural, irregular cave opening to the humanistic, rational circular staircase.
