Title:
The Womb

Author:
Isabella L Friis

Description:
The Womb is an architectural concept focusing on the bridge between individual, nature, and community. It attempts to connect with nature as a primary remedy against mental health issues that occur as an effect of urbanisation, self-isolation, and social distancing, creating a sanctuary for contemplation and mental well-being. The structure is to provide a sanctuary for humans and nature alike. A place where people can find peace and see nature grow in protected surroundings. The structure will also create natural barriers against surrounding noise providing peaceful seclusion. The Womb is constructed with blocks of wood (preferable cedar) and overgrown by plants and mosses. This wooden shell embraces a central tree, its canopy towering above the top circular beam creating a green roof to complete the spherical structure. The planters will be integrated into some of the wooden blocks making vegetation an integral part of the structure both inside and outside. The spheres each have 2 entrances, which are cut out of the arching wooden blocks, revealing a sanctuary for people to interact with. The internal center or the core of the Womb is an explosion of lush and dense greenery and a singular tree as the main focal point for users. The top opening of the spheres is designed to provide canopy and vegetational growth
