Hypocaust Museum

With Ben Stringer

In a park on a hillside in St.Albans, a Roman Mosaic has been excavated and left in site.

The Romans invented concrete.

Our proposal is formed from a single ribbon of concrete leaping skyward in a parabolic arc around the mosaic.

It is designed to frame a variety of views of the mosaic to establish strong visual connections with the park and distant views of the city.
