Competition | Spring 2014
— with Shivani Jain | Honorable Mention
This folly was designed and produced as part of a three-day competition hosted by EPIC Metals. The rules simply required their metal decking material be creatively re-used.
The folly's form is derived from duality. The spiral form creates experiences that ultimately clash at the focal center. Light and dark serves as the primary contrasting principle behind the two paths; while one ascends into light, the other remains cold. Metal decking material emphasizes this contrast with its acoustic properties by maintaining silence inside the shell. Users are ultimately able to interact with each other across the small threshold.
