First design concept model (design path 1)

In this initial model a sundial and solar calendar sits on top of a conical mound, the sides of which form a cascade. The public would be able to walk up to the sundial (on walkways omitted from this model) to spend time within the sundial space.

The time may be measured by tracking the reflection of the central pool across a scale. Commemorative inscriptions would be written in mirror writing within the pool, so that they would only be read clearly within the reflected image itself.

See the "Helios XXII" project for greater detail of the sundial element.
