Naturology : SAD HOUSE

 

Seasonal Dreamland Architectural Concept Collection


The aim was to experiment and challenge traditional ideas of shelter and invite nature to take control within the development of architecture. This collection is a proposal of how this material could be used on a large scale for future architectural purposes.
Living Architecture inspired by Seasonal Affected Disorder
(SAD)
.


This piece of conceptual architectural design is made out of shape memory polymers and wood veneer. The concept tackles the SAD problem that some people suffer from in winter. The architectural shape changes through heat. Having ‘laced’ the roof, it captures light in winter, to project shadows indoors , to enhance or mimic the experience of having the sun indoors. The roof is closed in summer, implying a directive to go outdoors and absorb more sunlight.
