Coral inspired Interior: Urban Interiorites, Tokyo
Urban Interiorities, a Project by University of Pennsylvania School of Design Professor Ali Rahim, Tiffany Dahlen and Virginia Melnyk, is a space created especially for the youths of Harajuku.
The aim was to develop a “new approach to the night club experience” through novel modeling and rendering techniques, whereby generated surfaces—billowing, crenulated, orchid-like—exert intense visualizations of sensations.
Virginia Melnyk tells us "much of our inspiration came from the sensations of taste and our perception of a visualization of these sensations. It is our hope that this project will push boundaries and leave viewers with a wider imagination of what architecture and design can be.”
