If a labyrinth is a continual spatial line, tightly wound onto, but never intersecting itself, what does it become if it is lifted into a different geometry and dimension? What novel things might this tell us about the spaces we construct and how we gain delight through their occupation? This experimental prototyping explores hyperbolic geometry; where instead of being limited to one degree of parallel line, infinite variation can be achieved. This project is ongoing.
Much of the work for an installation focusses on how to construct it; metaphorically but also literally. This habitually hidden process deserves documentation as much as anything else; Architecture is, after all, often about delivery. This gallery shows some of the design drawings, prototyping and mass construction processes of the framework and intelligent acutation mechanisms for ‘The Switching Labyrinth’ installation.
