About the Project
A journey towards freedom, a retreat for the lost and trapped.
Through meditating in seiza, user finds clarity and freedom after journeying through a series of spaces that inspire deep reflection and contemplation. Making up of structural elements that dissolve from a solid volume into planes and eventually lines, the structure also symbolises the breaking down process of unraveling the mental constructs thus achieving liberation and relief from the state of distress that obstructs and weighs them down. From darkness to light, from enclosed to open spaces, from coldness to warmth, the structure provokes user’s emotions through various spatial and sensory qualities and the choice of materiality while highlighting the beauty of the banal action chosen.
