Prompt: We were assigned to make a concept model, or abstract architectural model for a single unified structure that is designed to facilitate one of the following activities: gathering, playing, honoring, or reflecting
The type of activity the structure is meant to facilitate is Reflection. I wanted the space that will allow light and natural wind to flow through, and by using the lower wooden petals as a ramp, bodies would enter towards the center where they would have their private space to meditate and relax. I took inspiration from lotus flowers that wI would see all throughout my childhood, a form I found so calming to look at. I wondered what it would look like as a private space for people to freely reflect and be at peace with their own thoughts.
