suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Tom BENARD: This project challenges the narrow condition that has always existed between the human and the architectural, following the human being in his or her fantasy of transcendence. Spiritual and mystical architectures have often taken hybrid shape between a spiritual and physical attempt to reach a higher state of wisdom and understanding. This project speculates on the opportunities offered to us in this new millennium, analyzing transhumanism as a contemporary expression of mysticism.
