Spatial Inebriation is an investigation in the architectural experience of challenged perception - this experience being confusing, illusory, and optically ambiguous. It seeks to disorient, exhilarate and stupefy within an uncomfortable ambiguity between interior and exterior. These framing devices work with the unique characterists of color, form, and patterns from each given exterior condition to provide this alternative experience.
This project began with an observation that easily navigable spaces foster a complacent relationship between architecture and user. The project continues with a belief that challenged perception in architecture also brings about heightened perception, within architecture and beyond.
