    first rendering of our space

    We forsee certain afflictions when living in a space colony that we would like to solve with our space in a holistic manner. We think that the space colony may be potentially claustrophobic and confining, and also that being surrounded by lifeless man made things will close people perceptions and narrow their thinking (both these things leading to insanity).

    To solve these issues our space will include:

    - the shape of our structure (as seen above in our first rendering), But still it is too sharp and too thin - needs to be altered more. This space is in the form of an organic (blossoming) opening

    -the projection on the inner walls of our structure: want to project movement of clouds/skies and of rain, but not as seen ordinarily from earth. we want to alter the movement of the rain from its original gravitational pull.

    - a herbal/ayurvedic body wrap for people inside.
