The project pairs up site forces to create sets of interlocking relationships in which one affects each other. Like the glider study, water current affects directionality of glider’s flow but at the same time the glider is creating turbulence within the water. The membrane is pushed and pulled by forces and create cones in different scales and depth. These cones pointed up to the air and down to the water each measure local biological conditions and provide feedbacks to the membrane system. The deep cones go under existing river bed and create deep water zone which allow new species to habitat.

The membrane with less degree of curvature provides an interactive and walkable surfaces mediating between water current and force of people’s movement, allows water current and people’s movement to affects each other. These moving membranes create openings allowing light to penetrate to the deep water cone and changing the water volume inside the cones.
