The Sugar Shack is an architectural space providing the opportunity for the audience to ascend into a cabin of meditation. A skylight at the top interrupts daily routine and provides a guide to enlightenment. The structure can be viewed as two separate components whose forms appear to be pulling away from each other. This gesture creates a historical narrative. At one point in time these forms were closer together. Structurally the tension between the two forms is what supports them. When looking at architecture and considering foundations we might think of the five classical orders. The upper cabin is supported by five columns, and one that stepped out of line.
