Building elements


Building system
4 elements are crucial in this building system, completing geometry with continuing axis and radial symmetry completed by reflection, frames which tells extended spaces, floor patterns which distinguishes the spaces, displacing exteriors with angled mirrors which blurs exterior into interior then creating endless interior. Also seeing outdoor environment reflected in other axis, such as seeing sky in the ground or wall made of ocean creates surreal experience.
