project: structure with experientially different interior / exterior
Our studio was charged with creating an inhabitable structure, in which the experience of the interior is different from that of the exterior. The concept was to create an occupiable tensegrity structure. Using a system of adjustable knots, wood boards, and aluminium L brackets, the structural frame was assembled with a hanging seat at the center. The frame was covered in fabric to create an interior and exterior condition.
