Inspired by the aesthetics of dunes and the complexity of drapery, this is a study in warped single surfaces which are producing repetitive patterns and waved volumes.repetetive pattern
Atmoscape is a landscape design for an elementary school. It is an investigation in fluid dynamics, atmosphere and how sensory triggers can be integrated into a landscape design.
soma is currently working on the implementation of the project with a focus on the concept of timebased changes of visual effects and smells caused by plants and greenery.
differentiation through topography
Breeze evolved from our ongoing investigation into the application of aggregation processes to Architecture. Unlike modularity, which tries to find efficient ways of breaking up larger structures into manageable parts, aggregations are based on a molecular element and its inherent accumulation possibilities, often leading to unforeseen results.

Synaesthetic Filter is a mobile pavilion for experimental music that is supposed to be temporarily assembled in public open or enclosed spaces. It attracts passer-bys to enter and get into contact with contemporary experimental music.
.exterior view – pavilion for experimental music
The proposed structure is a semi-permanent summer pavilion for exhibitions and events. The pavilion is not an enclosure inhabiting a gallery space. Instead it enables its site itself to become a place for display. Its movable parts allow diverse spatial configurations to happen all over the site and create an open environment instead of a fixed set-up.

soma* won the second prize in the competition for the redesign of the Karlsplatz-Passage, Vienna. It is the busiest public transport hub in Austria, counting over 200.000 passengers a day. The result of the competition is published in the current edition of Architektur Aktuell (The Art of Competition, Springer-Verlag, March 2009).
