Drift”. To be carried slowly by a current of water or air or even a senseless movement. This project is a pneumatic structure designed to express the senses of drift. The space is designed in a way to emitate the process of sleep, creating a atmosphere which integrates the senses and this dream like state, REM.
The stages of design include: Stage 1, 2,3,4, REM
Descending from light to deep sleep.
Once in the deepest stage of sleep, REM sleep begins; The Dream State. Repairing the mind and body
only thing that moves is the eyes
The overall concept allows the conduction of an air-inflated structure with a single membrane. Hot air pressure would raise the structure independently allowing it to sway and have a gentle flow, elevating the pneumatic structure above the ground through the tensile force stands and timber support. The sense of warmth adds to the concepts entity, promoting a sense of drowsiness, drifting of to sleep and the dreams of REM.
The interior membrane utilises a fold methodology, offering the seams to hide effortlessly within the structures interior and allowing the celling ability to drift and sway further promoting movement. The form of the overall eight timber corresponding structure (feet) is designed in a way to complement the entire structure for below. They are of a similar organic shape offering the design a sense of unity and continuity. “Drift”. To be carried slowly by a current of water or air or even a senseless movement.
