In the Wake of the Atmos+sphaira is an architectural thesis that investigates the roles of atmospheric events in reimagining architectural space. The framing of events is the subject of revision, where atmosphere emerges as both spatial content and container. This architecture of atmosphere reconstructs the dialogue between body and space, creating a new trilogy of relationships: space, atmosphere and event.
Initially, this thesis developed an apparatus that has the operational capacity to capture, orient, determine, intercept, model, control, categorize and diverge atmospheric events into two predetermined conditions: temperature and temperament. Positioned between the technical and the aesthetic, temperature and temperament bring the quantitative and qualitative dimensions of atmosphere into dialogue with one another. The byproduct of the convergence between temperature and temperament is a Temperamental Architecture, an architecture that reclaims space as atmosphere.
