Segregation amidst the site volumes were made ; Vegetation , Machinery , and Supports ( props involved in stabilizing the ship ) , which were progressed with final modelling of the enclosed representative installations , namely , VEGETATION : V1 , V2 ; MACHINERY : M1, M2 ; and SUPPORTS . Whereas , Experiential exhibits are namely , WALK - A - WAY , wherein , the wooden framed doorways with certain obstructive form enabled the person to experience of walking between the props and supports of Uru ; WATER - WAYS , an acrylic platform in river in vicinity to the shore composed from abstracted volumes , that provided the natural tinge of interaction between the water body and the person ; and APEX , the tallest component of the exhibition will help ushering the viewer visually throughout the exhibition site at one spot.
