The cyclus of water. The site is placed on a spectacular, thin peninsula that almost divides the lake of Viksdalen. The lake is situated in a large, open landscape shaped by large mountains. The site is placed barely above the water level. Twice a year the area floods. the water level raise and cover the ground that normally are above the water. The building, the object, then changes from being a tower on dry land, to be a tower only reachable by a bridge. The water is not streaming, it raises slowly and sink back again in a period of some days.
