Registration for Enfolding Space (6 persons/turn) at andrea@trafo.hu, starting times in every 20 minutes.

We spend most of our everyday life in static interiors. In rooms that are angular shaped, with floors and confined by straight walls. But imagine an architectural space that is dynamic instead.

A flexible space that shapes itself according to your body and your movements. With his newest project Enfolding Space, Dutch artist Teun Vonk experiments with creating architectural space of truly human proportions, that engages the sensibility of the entire body. He is developing a material that is fluid, intuitive and playful, and has the potency to change the way you think about architecture forever.
