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.
