I am young South African architecture student . I will be completing my masters (prof) in architecture at Wits Univeristy at the end of 2019. I am a professional procrastinator , I am uncertain of where I am going , how I will get there or who I will be going with. My soul guides me , and I am passionate about not knowing or never being satisfied .

The conscious building


Syncing the mind to an evolving architecture

The conscious building


Syncing the mind to an evolving architecture
The project explores a new building technology that is synced to the mind of the occupant . The architecture thus morphs, grows and evolves according to the needs , emotions and requests of the user.

Type of project
  • New areas of operation

The year is 2100 and the architectural world has evolved into living systems : each building existing as an independent organism . The gap between the mentality of dreams , thoughts , emotions and information have been bridged by a syncing chip. The chip, implanted into the mind of the user allows the occupied space to morph and grow as per what is needed . The structure is made primarily of “ Darwin Clay” , a new organic compound that can be electrically stimulated to ‘evolve’. Its evolution is only limited to the mind of its occupants .
It has been the breakthroughs in linking neuroscience to architecture that has allowed us to create this new metamorphic system. Despite previous debates , the architect has not become obsolete . They are ; however , more needed than ever as they deposit , program and exchange their own ideas into the syncing chips .
