A place for Night Owls - Little Nemo

My new studio project here at the Washington Alexandria Architecture Center is a sleep center for patients suffering from insomnia.   Using drawings from the famous comic story Little Nemo, (a dark, surreal, and violent story about a boy, Nemo, and his vivid dreams), I have constructed a diagrammatic section to help define space and spark some initial concepts.  This specific drawing was conjured from Nemo’s travels in Befuddle Hall.  Here things have a tendency to be distorted, out of scale, and inverted.  This conceptual diagram revolves around the inversion of space in relation to the real and dream world.
