Living Capriccio is an immersive, transformative, experiential world that desires to “co-live” in a capitalist driven world with its non-disposable fast changing architecture. Infiltrating Market Street one of the busiest streets in San Francisco, California, and where you will experience the fast-paced life of consumerism. Composed of versatile, flexible, and “fashion” like atmospheric structures fluctuate with infinite possibilities. The design’s transformative and versatile functions, offers the project a range of creative urban spaces.
Nebulous domes are embedded in a new continuous walking surface made from plastic waste erasing all boundaries from the street. Nebulous domes are flat when dormant for public transportation, people, and bikes to circulate above. When awakened platforms emerged creating sitting areas. Within the platform a contour structure is erected by an upward force and strands creating a seductive, free, and alive urban space. Landscape domes and swells between the nebulous domes provide a new ecology for animals, pollinators, and people to coexist and create a biodiversity corridor. Living Capriccio is activated by the community and constantly changing. The aspect of always changing while been permanent to the site creates an event, an action in the present. It’s s dialect between permanent and transitory, mobile, and ephemeral.
