Sarah Hasan, “Lightopia// A Hyper Plenum of Embodied Light"
Sarah Hasan's Master of Architecture thesis project, “Lightopia// A hyper plenum of embodied light," proposes a Hyper Plenum — that is, an evolved ceiling surface that enhances lighting conditions for spaces with large floor plates. The intervention consists of an actuated surface that captures daylight, embodies it and redistributes it where needed. The Hyper Plenum presents a conceptual framework for responsive architectures that give agency to — and act as an extension of — the inhabitants and their metabolic functions.
