Polyrhythmic architecture is a kinetic architectural model where the individual space-forming elements can be rotated by 90 degrees. This allows for two different space compositions; in the crossover from one spatial state to the other, the elements move at a different pace, which leads to a polyrhythmic room sequence.
The goal of this work is to translate a rhythmic idea into a spatial structure without giving up its time-based dynamics.
