Waking Arch 2015

WakingArch investigates the meaning of "opening" by relating the human mind to the physical architectural space.
The pressure chamber of a coffee moka is inverted and replace the keystone, a structural element that allows it to be balanced. Assembled in a single signifying form, these two elements would said: as an arch opens a physical space in architecture, the café wakeup and open a psychic space in the human body.
