Description

The Sanctum is a critique on identifying a personal form and structure in one’s life, to create a personal space, that acts as a medium for mediation and self-reflection. Sanctums are often filled with prescriptive elements like fractal math and formal typology to grapple with the idea of infinity. The superstructures are constructed by multiplying a selfsimilar form between the value of zero to one, to create an infinite sequence of fractal geometry. This thesis uses structure and light to allow the sanctum to return to a more primal form, which is relevant to modern design practices, while still maintaining philosopies and ideologies that connect the user to a more spiritual presence.
