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, whose spiral creates experiences that ultimately clash at the focal center. Light and darkness serve as primary contrasting principles 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. At the center, users can interact with each other across the small threshold as if gazing to the sky.
