Man-Made Waterfall Architecture
The Shore Vista Boat Dock is Serenely Sweeping

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Jan 1, 12

It is impressive to think about the things humans are capable of creating, especially when it replicates nature like the Shore Vista Boat Dock does. Mimicking a waterfall, although on a much smaller scale, this dock is both streamlined and breathtaking. It combines the best of two worlds: The structure of man and the organic presence of nature.

Designed by Bercy Chen Studio, the Shore Vista Boat Dock is located on a bend in Lake Austin across from Canyonland Nature Preserve. Its soft, spherical form complements its surroundings instead of detracting from it. The snaking staircase adds a sweeping line that really captures the natural bend of the shore itself. Simple and serene, the Shore Vista Boat Dock offers a peaceful retreat for vacationers who have traveled along the lake and require an impromptu port.
