Second Shore

A Destination within a Journey



The dynamic interaction between the elemental energies of wood, fire, earth, metal and water have shaped shorelines for centuries. These phenomena and their transformative “chi” energy have made shorelines fascinating cultural and commercial destinations for people everywhere. What a boastful City is to its citizens and visitors, a humble kiosk is to its shoreline: a destination within the journey of life.

Chi-Osk and Cities

The SecondShore Team interpreted the special characteristics of shorelines, the needs of the City institutions, and the desires of the public to create a powerful, iconic and flexible small-scale architectural design that can transform public spaces on a year-round basis by serving as cultural and commercial destinations and crossroads for all seasons.
