Can architecture be like an atmosphere? By using the energy of the sun to create an architectural volume, the installation behaves in synergy with planetary constellations and is a direct transformation of energy into architectural space. Known as the coriolis effect, the installation creates waves similar to the Rossby-Waves, giant serpentine streams of high altitude winds, largely responsible for the global weather. Sunsight to Sunclipse is a space that represents a new type of architecture which understands itself as part of a larger planetary system that is fluid, dynamic and responsive.

Still from our film #notesonfortnightism with @chan.carson. This is a grey-water collector which sits at the down point of a #stretchmembrane inspired by #soapbubbleexperiment by the great #freiotto. The diagonal orientation of high and low points create a constant slope and a structural rigid #saddlesurface. ...
