War, as an event, is a threshold to a liminal condition: between knowing and remembering; between the present and the past. It is an unexpected pause which never leaves you. War is an undesirable journey which determines a transitional experience from one aspect of life to another.
This project, a Circus in a Tower, is an abstract exploration of the vertical and transitional thresholds in architecture as a
philosophical commentary on war. Architecture and war are conditions of man-made space; both control and determine our humanity, physically and psychologically.
In war you exist, hovering in a liminal space of an unpredictable time frame, not sure of the future and unsure of the present. Once you cross the threshold of war you can never return to how you were before.
