Venue for the Collective Consciousness of Techno
TEAM: Dylan King, United States, The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture
Order has no place here, compelling clubbers to develop autonomous relationships with the spaces that surround them. Through compounding forms, a variety of spatial conditions are conceived.
Chaos ensues, producing the allusion of organic space. Users create personally-tailored mental maps of the venue, recalling specific spatial conditions, geometries, textures, and colors based solely on affection.
Through exploring the complexities of the resulting maze, one becomes preferential toward certain characteristics. Individuals organize themselves spontaneously through these personal affinities. Amplified in multitude, this process breeds hyperspecific pools of collective consciousness under the veil of disintegration.
In the social climate of a nightclub, where hundreds of people share the same space while maintaining vastly different experiences, users become more likely to “find the others.”
