Unreal/Real (A journey through texts into spaces)

“Reality is an illusion, a fabrication”

My final year project asks: what if we let a text dictate how a space should look or be organised rather than taking our design cues from ‘copy-paste’ trends? The project presents the translation of texts and short stories into designed spaces that don’t compromise on spatial experiences.

It is almost predictable as to how one’s house would look due to the “copy and paste” trend where most of the people reference how and what they want their house to look like based on another person’s home. This compromises the spatial experience and individuality of a house. How can we break out of this trend? Spaces determine the journey. What if we let the journey dictate how spaces should be organized? What if we let text dictate how the spaces should be organized?
