CONCEPT

I always find that when I experience true happiness it isn't from something new I have gained but from a change in perspective on what I already have. The shift in awareness makes me realise all of the wonderful things I have to be thankful for and makes me appreciative of what I already have. This temple design embodies the idea of laughter and happiness as the users transitions out of the space. The space its self is designed to deprive the user of all sense except for touch. The focus on touch is intentionally to help the user reconnect with their body. Two people to experience introspection and sensory deprivation. Each enters from an opposite side, they might be friends, they might be strangers. Inside each person moves through a transitional space with thin fabric like walls not knowing where the other is. Their heat is transmitted through the material so the other can sense their presence through touch. From having almost all sense deprived, as the user exits, they feel a sense of relief as all of their senses rush back to them. All of their senses are heightened and they start to notice little things around them, beautiful little details they never did before because of their newfound sensory awareness.
