Another in a conceptual project of Architecture as Public Officers, this is a low-count polygon - a sphenoid hendecahedron - whose fabricated form and position are not prescribed but invented as it is being constructed. The underlying geometry is a unique polygon that allows for packing, allowing this pod to aggregate with others in a new, informal community.
Wound about a sacrificial frame, the carbon fibre (CFRP) shell is layered not only to produce efficacy in lightweight monocoque structures but also for identity, pattern interference, and visual affects.
In keeping with the Ministries, there is an internal space for one person.
