Built of light weight polycarbonate panels and zip ties, Nunuvut was designed as an evolving architectural platform for ongoing performances. A personal and expressible architecture that can transform from – blanket, to suit, to hide, to roof and to a blossom. Nunuvut’s fractured tile geometry is based on an imagined trip of mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose to the Canadian Arctic Archipelago Territory of Nunuvut.
