super galaxy

Super Galaxy is an architectural system saturated in atmospheric and electronic phenomena. It is a nomadic enclave in an endless state of spatial and material flux. As it fluctuates between states of varying coherence (solidity, liquidity, and gaseousness), its inner structure maintains an invisible, yet definable pattern. It is a responsive system capable of dynamically interacting with its surroundings on many levels. It is in a constant state of motion as it calibrates and recalibrates relative to both real-time global datasets (weather, pollution, warfare, etc.) and local datasets (desired micro-climates, heat exchange, light and sound).
