Lithoform aims to create an interlude in the windy winter conditions outside. Recreating the natural formations of our lithosphere formed as a product of frost wedging, it provides a space to thaw during frigid temperatures. Lithoform’s fissures guide you through a polychromatic cavern of filtered light around the centrally located lifeguard station. A contoured mass adorns the lifeguard station with sheltered seating, allowing users to experience the outdoors without being subject to the icy winds. Users passing by the installation are enticed to enter by the soft shadows of those moving through the interior
A CNC-milled wood frame structure supports the faceted translucent acrylic elements of the design, using zip-ties to secure the white panels to the exterior along the body and the roof’s fissured blocks. Colourful transparent acrylic extrusions protrude from the chimneys to infuse the space below with coloured light.
