    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    Ubiquitous Habitats hold a minimum of two criteria:

    1. Every point in space, through kinesthetic instigation, is a possibility for becoming a 'site.'
    2. Every site or 'tentative holding space' (Gins and Arakawa) provides limitless potential for the organism on/within that site.

    Applying this concept to architecture creates shapeless architecture which defines our world and which itself is defined by our bodies. The initial stage of this architecture is introduced in the form of a garment—an easily attainable representation of a larger scale of architecture.

    The process is a study of the relationship between an organism and an occupiable body—be it the I and the physical body, the body and architecture, or architecture and nature. Space is defined through tension and relaxation of an organism's movements. The movements and their resultant forms create new shifting organisms.

    The concept is in support of emergent architectures where form arises from natural pattern; and nomadic systems where organism and form are all encompassing, becoming one, and adapting to multiple states.
