Occupy A Pool
This project is about re-programming an interior test site that is paired with a modeling technique focusing the design efforts through a particular approach to material and spatial concerns, leaving room for individual translation and invention. The site is an olympic pool and the space is re-programmed to accommodate performances. The pool is flipped vertically and floating above the emptied original pool, which now functions as a performance space. The wall of the new pool is made of a cast of rockite and the water is represented by casted soap which allows light to penetrate through.
