YO:MA CONCRETE OR BEACHES, THE DEATH AND RISE OF ARCHITECTURE. FROM SAND YOU HAVE COME. TO SAND YOU SHALL RETURN.FROM A BROAD PALETTE OF WONDROUS MATERIALS THAT IMPLODES THE LIMITATIONS OF STANDARD SOLUTIONS, YOU SHALL RISE AGAIN. THE WORLD CAN'T SUSTAIN ONE-WAY THINKING, JUST AS IT CAN'T SUSTAIN ONE-WAY CONSUMPTION, AS THIS LEAVES THE WORLD TREMBLING ON ONE LEG, CREATING A SHAKY FOUNDATION.IN THE SAME WAY THAT THE STEAK ON YOUR PLATE IS FINDING ALTERNATIVES, SO IS THE SANDWICH ELEMENT OF THE WALL. WHAT WAS ONCE LIMITED BY A GIVEN IS NOW A DIVERSE PALETTE OF OPTIONS, ALLOWING FOR FURTHER CONSIDERATIONS INTO LOCAL RESOURCES, CLIMATE, AND THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE, AND IT ALL SEEMS BEAUTIFULLY CHOREOGRAPHED AS THE VARIOUS ELEMENTS ALIGNS, REWINDING ARCHITECTURE AND THE WORLD AHEAD.

The night skies remind us of our place in the Universe. The universe gives us a way point, makes us feel a connection and understanding of our own scale. It gives us perspective. Being under a sky full of stars makes you feel tiny, humble, kind and caring.

The Scalessness of a desert landscape is reflecting the vastness of the universe. 

The lack of external stimulation brutally confronts you with the nothingness of the desert. 

The mind is dried out, in biblical terms the desert symbolizes a process of purification.

The project is a refuge located in the Nevada desert. It’s a place that pulls you away from known reality, a place that in all aspects caters for you too reconnect with nature, in its purest and emptiest form. The space provides an escape, where visitors naturally “unplug” themselves from the constant noise. The main focus is quietness, slowness and contemplation.

The architecture situates itself as a mediator between the desert and sky, forming a space around the emptiness and vastness for people to regain a sense of belonging. 

The architecture becomes an instrument for       Observation 

The architecture becomes an instrument for       Framing

The architecture becomes an instrument for     Experience 

The architecture becomes a 
Mediator.
