Antiroom II remains light and gentle through its floating and instability.

One can enter its core, contemplate its structure and express his unity with the sky and the cosmos.

Antiroom II can float and move slowly away, as a new isolated world, in the sea.

I thought it was really beautiful until I read the pretentious describtion...

it's not pretentious, it's at best ridiculously naive. the design itself is nice and, somehow, allows a spatial experience, unlike trolling...

Leave to an architect (in the name of 'modernism') to find beauty in a man made BS round object in what once was a TRULY beautiful ocean.

the mediterranean sea never once was an ocean, is still beautiful, and will never been threatened by a 10m radius floating object,

Lucas Hoop · January 09, 2016 06:41 AM

You have to imagine eating a picnic on that round object while you and your friends are going for a swim in that beautiful ocean; the object isn't what's beautiful, it's the experience.
