Multiincident Shells are switchable structures that are enriched with events
The Blue Shell in the Black Treefrog is a Multiincident Shell which is informed by the functions and programs of dwelling. The program of daily life – kitchen niche, sleeping cove, bathing niche, etc. – is then integrated into the space in between. The new interior envelope is conceived as a continuously active media surface – Projections, enlarged picture screens or TV – that makes the spatial divisions into virtual phenomena.
