Description:

House of Multiple Dimensions with HappenInc, 2004

Einstein’s discoveries (over eighty years ago) overthrew Newtonian ideas, and yet most of us still see space and time in absolute terms, while the passage of time depends on our state of motion. In ‘The Elegant Universe,’ Brian Greene seeks to resolve the incompatibles of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics through String Theory, requiring that we drastically change our understanding of space, matter, and time....

 

A small house based on the String Theory acts as an experimental probe into an architecture of more than four dimensions. The experiential phenomenon of the house has been illustrated in a series of collages. Each of the four dimensions are explored extending the premise in Edwin Abbott's classic tale of interdimensional experience "Flatland: A romance of many dimensions". Materials, from molecular aspects to geometric properties are incorporated with space and time.

Testimonials

I have worked with Charmaine, Hieu and the team at 8i Architects for the past 6 years. I can honestly say that if you want no nonsense, non-ego based, well thought through and sensible architecture then let 8i manage your project for you. 

 

In my opinion 8i are big enough to handle projects up to the value of around $100m but small enough to provide the level of service that you won't get from the larger architectural firms who will give your project to a junior architect to manage.
