England Sanctuary Norwich

Design Concept
The design emerged as an interplay between human dimension and Reciprocal Frame geometry.

The overall diameter of the building accommodated people lying on the floor with heads directed to the centre.

The number "seven" provided a key to design resolution.

At the given diameter, seven sides, revealed a correspondence between open-arm span and wall length. Seven beams provided structural stability and a pitch that brought the vortex of the atrium into natural relaxed focus of a person lying on the floor. This relationship released the potential of the Reciprocal Frame as an architectural mandala.
