The Architecture Foundation Project Space // Shortlisted entry
Tensional Landscape is a dynamic 3-dimensional composition of undulating surfaces and vertical column components. The installation investigates the notion of blurred spatial and social boundaries. The floor and the ceiling merge forming nodes of social interaction - places to pause and look out through the window or sit down and experience the immediate surroundings. The project consists of a conglomeration of paper components linked via 3-d prototyped connections. In addition, CNC-milled floor and ceiling artificial landscape inspired by reef formations establishes continuous interaction between the users/ visitors of the space. The project attempts to explore various scales of fabrication - from the small scale folded paper components to the large milled landscape surfaces. Tensional Landscape questions the conventional use of our built environment by proposing a far more engaging spatial and social public realm. Light trickles through the windows and into the space... the shadows cast on the landscape announcing the time of day...
