Parachute NOM

Supervisors / James Pearce, Uwe Rieger

Semester 2 //2009 // BAS // University of Auckland

Auckland Architecture Week winner. The inflatable piece of architecture starts out as a circular (12 meter in diameter) flat piece of material that is flapped and formed into a malleable dome by its participants.
A perimeter of sandbags and nylon material assists with retaining the captured air, as users are invited to relax on custom made beanbags.
