GASP stage two is the penultimate gesture of the Glenorchy Art and Sculpture Park (GASP!) .  It is composed of architecture that responds to  the scale of the surrounding landform.  Blunt forms frame and command the superlative Tasmanian landscape.  Colour and architecture have been used as a vehicle for  re-evaluation and re-appreciation of place.  The re-forming of the shoreline embraces the expanse of Elwick Bay, the bay becomes integral to the experience, a unity has been created.
