About Our Spheres
The way I see it I am a spiritual being having an experience in a body. If the Creator/Spirit is everywhere and in everything, including me, then I am one with it and everything else in all of existence. This way of thinking led me to pose a question to Spirit: “What can I do to prolong these ‘whole-minded moments’ which arise from my awareness of oneness in meditative and creative states?” The idea for the spheres came as a response to that question.
Architecture is a way of shaping and creating habitat to reflect a feeling and to harmonize with the environment. The sphere is a form of architecture that reflects that thought of unity and feeling of oneness. Where normal square/rectangular housing separates walls, floor and ceiling with hard lines and often colour and material changes – in a sphere they all become one. Like a nut, it also has some amazing engineering properties, as the shell tends to distribute stresses throughout the unified structure rather than a bunch of disconnected panels. The principle at play here is called ‘biomimicry‘.
Then, continuing with Spirit’s idea, take a sphere and hang it from ropes, letting it float in space. The web of rope the spheres hang from is more biomimicry. It spreads the attachment around to many different strong points and ensures safety in a dynamic environment like a forest canopy. I grew up dreaming of tree houses and it’s a space that feels like magic to me. There are many spaces that have that magic feel on the planet and this is one model of accessing them without destroying the environment.
