This was a student project by Joseph N. Mathias for Luke Kautz's ARCH 241 course, Autumn 2006.
"To understand the relationship between a landscape and built environment we researched layered systems. The deep surface found in the construction of ships was used as a diagram to produce compressive and smooth spaces for a rest stop. By inverting the compartments of a ship, the smooth surface (exterior of a ship's hull) interiorized to accept traffic, while the compartments containing program moved into the landscape." -- Joseph Mathias
