An experiential manifestation of space and structure.
Every space conveys a specific experience whether it be programmatic or an
ambiance created by color and light. Though the experience of a building’s inhabitants is always
kept in mind throughout the design process, it is never physically realized until the completion
of a project because only upon completion may an inhabitant occupy and experience
the project. What if, instead, the experience and construction occurred simultaniously? The
intent of our project is to explore that notion of simultanaity through the application of interactive
media in providing peculiar spatial experiences that allow the inhabitants to form structure and
space through their very presence and interaction with the medias and machines.
The presence of sound and light enhance the inhabitant’s experience as well as
help create continuous reaction between a physical being and the physical structure. A person
may be drawn to a particular quadrant because of present sound or light conditions at that
location, and once the person arrives to that location, the machine then reacts to that arrival by
providing a different condition which may guide the being into his or her next interaction, and
so on. And it is through this continuous loop of feedback that varying quadrants of the shrink
wrap are heated, creating a mroe rigid structure that will eventually become free-standing, and
the hanging structure may be taken out having acted as a sort of temporary scaffolding.
