Brightly coloured shops

My first thought was to give the shop area of my building a vintage quirky style, but on second thoughts i would rather maintain the bright colours and fresh feel that run throughout the other floors. Here are some inspirational images...

I also like how this simple plan shows how colour is used throughout

Water inspired sculptures

Im thinking of having a sculpture running through two floors in my honours project. As it is a water tower, i think the sculpture should be inspired but the shapes and movement of water. Here are some similar sculptures

Medium Glass Wave Sculpture. Inspired by the transitional qualities found in water and our British coastline. Fusing and kiln forming to produce this timeless piece of glass wave sculpture.

Space saving furniture!

A brilliant video on space saving furniture. Very inspirational for my Honors project which is a small building!

Interactive flooring

The top floor in the building for my honours project will house a camera obscura. I want to create a 'shadow' on each floor as though the light from the camera has shone through the building...

So each floor will have a circle on the floor, or a hole in the floor

One idea for these circles is to have them as an interactive floor. Here are some examples of interactive floors...

'water figures'

Splashes of Colours, Water Figures by Linden Gledhill 

These stunning images would provide great inspiration for water-inspired sculptures.

The kinetic wall

Whilst researching into ways of encorporating a water theme into my Honours project building i came across the 'kinetic wall'.

'The effect is created with 250,000 aluminum panels which are loosely suspended so as to move gently with the wind. The huge kinetic artwork captures the ever-changing movement of the wind in a graceful way that also happens to be naturally calming. Maybe the road rage that results from trying to fight your way out of a crowded parking garage will be lessened by the smoothly rippling panels that look eerily like a displaced lake.' (

It will also provide the car park with ventuilation and therefore cutting energy costs.
