PINarchitecture micro competition – DEC13

I -alex
The competition brief:
“The primary function of a window is to visually connect interior and exterior environments, but windows are also a point of transmission for many other conditions. Windows permit light, heat, and, if open, breezes, smells, and sounds, among others. What if the passage of one or more elements were disassociated from the penetration of light? How might an opaque aperture transmit select conditions through a distinct area of wall? What is the value of communicating a non-visual condition from outside to inside, or vice versa? What happens when a window becomes blind?”

I abandon the concept of a window to create a place, a space, a moment of introspection for the human soul.
