The Tesseract

The Tesseract proposes an alternative way of coliving—one that incorporates its surrounding environments, culture, and ecology. An automobile engine research and development center, Tesseract takes a cue from the dominant automobile influence and the West’s deep-rooted and undying love for adventure sports and racing. It addresses the road trip culture and aims to bring in the technological zeitgeist, the electric engines, to replace old rusty gasoline-operated machines. Latching onto an existing excavated off-roading race track, the project incorporates the racing spirit and serves as an extension to the track.

Furthermore, just like the program aims to replace the decaying engine while keeping the outer body intact, the project also deals with the ideas of decay with respect to materiality, assembly, and integration.
