Project FOCUS Gallery Cape Town is intended to promote a radical reassessment of our perception of spatial context, by improving the experience of being in the environment. According to the British architect Margot Krasojevic, depending on the desired effect, areas for recreational climbers must either increase the perception of the surrounding landscape, or completely block it, to restore and support the psychological state and health.
For example, proposed by the architect-innovator project of hotel hanging from the observation deck Hanging Hotel ensures the safety of climbers to stop time for rest and beholding picturesque views of nature through the lens created by the structure of the optical effects.
Forms of glass are seeking to protect climbers from harmful UV rays and glare, reflecting light in one direction and creating the illusion that the sun is at a lower position than they really are.
High-tech system used to control shutters and editing of mirages and illusions with prismatic optical elements that change the color perception of surrounding reality.
The organic shell pendant hotels made of reinforced carbon fiber – reinforced flexible and lightweight modern material. Fixture designs of high-tech field is expected in the most favorable for halts on climbing routes.
To set the hotel architects have developed a special mounting system that allows to fix firmly futuristic structure in the rocky terrain.
