Human understanding of ephemeral architecture:

Functional. Disposable. Portable. Indisposable?
Client: Entrepreneurs?
Digital age. Nomads? Virtual reality. Intangible? Network. Motion>emotionless. Electromagnetic fields constitute as invisible elements of space.

The Ephemeral space:
Purpose of, its context or materiality of the space. Motion, perception? Static, exchanging forces, conducting materials? Micro-coordination, coupling of behavior to possibility, in the moment.

Initial thoughts:
Material that degrades through use? Deciduous, effected by the sun – human prescience?

Thoughts, processed:
Digital society -> engage and participate. Different levels. Network -> key to? Reactive space, reacting to user? Is the user the key? Wireless? Materials that wear over time? Multidimensional? Hourglass? Time -> 4 dimensions.
Entrepreneurs:
Talkative. Open. Self efficacy. Energetic, active. Mood disorders, anxiety. Need for achievement. Innovative. Collaborative. Locus of control, own decision control them.
Irregular work patterns.

Client:
Architects and designers. Never stood still. Irregular working patterns. Creative. Communal. Still require alone time. Mixed personalities, introvert and extrovert. Active. Passionate. Open minded.
The notion behind my concept of the static frames is that each time an individual or group of people move round it, they change the views themselves, vertically and horizontally,
of the historic building behind and each view is different. Almost creating an illusion as each framed view will also be varied per time of day as well. Whatever is framed inside the voids is a freeze frame, a pause, a window into the past, as they are mostly working in the inner zone of the pool, and then free to move further afield. The main zone in the centre is almost adopted as familiar territory, and the remainder of the interior is on pause, in technical terms – preserved. But the permanent idea whilst work life and collaborative life goes on at the core.
