suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
julia KOERNER + nora GRAW: designed from the inside of an intricate large single surface space, organized through a strategy of nesting and poché, to a three dimensional structural volume, which creates blurred depth through a gradient from relief to structure, dependent on the distance of the inner volume to the outer skin, which let the focus on the volumes or parts of it fall off gradually until they disappear in depth.
