In architecture, the spacial possibilities are infinite. Every corner, plane, and material impacts the experience for those who occupy that space. Architects often put excessive emphasis on facade design and interiors, while ceilings are seen as secondary priority surfaces. This installation challenges those assumptions by considering spatial design holistically.
Dynamic Ceiling was created in order to convey the concept of flow. One may relate flow with malleable elements such as water and wind. In addition, it can also convey motion. One of the most important aspects of design is movement and circulation. Architects, such as Zaha Hadid, realized such a concept of flow in the Maxxi Museum in Rome showing movement throughout the building. The circulation is clearly stated by the light and materials used in her design. She even takes it a step further by cantilevering one of her axises towards old Rome, a very poetic and powerful move.
In this installation, it was crucial to show how the ceiling could become continuous surface connecting the walls to the floor. In addition, the physical form of “flow” can be further extended in order to engage the people occupying it. For example, in Dynamic Ceiling, the surfaces gradually move towards the floor and provides an opportunity for people to sit there. This way, people are in direct contact with the space.
