There and Back Again: a tale of inspiration

The original inspiration for this project was in the fractal organization of forests. This served as the base for designing our structural unit which is pictured here.As we began to aggregate the units, we found that there were other sources of inspiration. The lofty canopy of the forest and Cloud City (Star Wars) were early influences. We came to the conclusion that the spaces we were beginning to create were not "cavernous enough". So why not look into caverns as a source of inspiration? So we found ourselves with a cast of characters supporting our design.

With inspiration coming from our own world, a galaxy far far away, and Middle Earth we have begun to create real space. It is pictured below:

  1. I am thinking this would make an excellent shopping a mall: variety in the collective space but uniformity in the unit space.
