The interior lighting will be comprised of numerous acrylic rods of various lengths inserted into the top plane of the structure. This rudimentary lighting system is inspired by Alfredo Moser and the “Liter of Light Movement” that brings eco-friendly light made from plastic bottles to communities living without electricity. Protruding above the roof, they will be filled with water that will refract direct sunlight above into diffused lighting below. Others will be left hollow which will drip rain water from the roof and distribute it to the garden. This chandelier carves out an interior volume that can be inhabited. As the day passes, the direction of sunslight the shadows of the trees will be registered within this volume of light.
The design of Medial Mossery encloses the existing top soil bed with a wood frame structure articulated with a series of louvres that will limit the amount of direct sunlight into the interior moss garden. Reclaimed wood will be interspersed in the wall structure creating apertures that will allow glimpses of the interior space and the lighting system by pedestrians and people in vehicles. A ramp that slopes from grade away from the intersection allows visitors to slowly ascent towards a viewing deck that frames the forested meridian of Broadway.
