My project, The information age
My garden is more on the technical side of the information age. I have gone more of the "computer" route. In my garden the top level is ground level, the "screen" you see is the "monitor" of the computer. The lower level includes my folly which I intended to make it look like a "box" this is the actual "computer". The top of my garden is open to public, the bottom is closed and is for the client whom can control the whole garden from there. To get to the second layer there is an elevator under the "power" symbol. My garden is mostly water, it includes an infinity pool dropping from the first layer to the second. I have included an arc with solar panels plus a generator under the arc so the garden is self sustainable. The garden itself represents the flow of technology, everything is connected.
Project Part II, Shift age House
The shift age, the transition into the future. My house reflects the shift age in that my Client is a english professor and loves knowledge, well in the future we might forget some things. My house is built off of preservation of knowledge. It is 135 ft tall and made out of glass to give the sense of "open world connectedness". The second floor is a library, the third is a computer room, and the fourth is a observation deck. The first level of my house (second floor) is the main house, it has open glass walls that you can move around to make zones. The height of my house is good in that it allows you to add on to it as you go through the shift age!
