Draw the eye. Everything is perfecty aligned on the axis that connects this open doorway with the perimeter hedge. You can see where the notion of a framed view works hand in hand with the idea of a focal point. That's because the grouping of terra cotta–colored spheres is nicely framed by every other element of this installation. First there are open glass doors, which link interior and exterior spaces. Next there's a stone patio, which draws the eye further, across the low hedging, over the water's surface and between two accent walls that create a gallery-like niche for the orbs. This technique works well in narrow spaces, adding perspective and creating a pleasing sense of proportion.
