This is a proyect made by achitecture students of Alicante's University. It's about an installation to build a feeling, which is relax.

Transcript of Building relax

  • ...building relax

  • The architects work is an answer to the space, What does it demand, what does it need... and also a question: how to transform ...

    ... to build an emotion

  • Cuando nuestro cuerpo co-

    mienza a relajarse, una serie

    de procesos van apareciendo

    poco a poco en nuestro cuer-

    po... procesos que te permiten

    alcanzar el estado de plenitud

    de relax. Una serie de fenme-

    nos biolgicos permiten que

    nuestros msculos se relajen

    y que nuestra mente entre en

    un estado de reposo placen-

    tero y nico, donde nuestros

    pensamientos se desvanecen

    y nuestro contacto con la rea-

    lidad es tan blando y suave

    como el de una nube.

    La forma en la que todos

    nuestros sentidos interpretan

    When our body begins to

    relax, a series of processes

    are emerging slowly in our

    bodies ... processes that let

    you reach the state of fullness

    of relaxation. A number of

    biological phenomena allow

    our muscles to relax and let

    your mind at rest between

    pleasant and unique, where

    our thoughts vanish and our

    contact with reality is as soft

    and smooth as a cloud.

    The way in which our senses

    interpret reality and work with

    it creates different reactions in

    our body indirectly. From these

    interpretations of the reality of

  • la realidad y trabajan con ella

    crea diferentes reacciones de

    forma indirecta en nuestro or-

    ganismo. A partir de estas in-

    terpretaciones de la realidad

    de cada individuo vamos a

    adentrarnos en el propio cuer-

    po humano, saber cmo fun-

    ciona... e intentando que es-

    tas reacciones a los distintos

    estmulos sirvan de catalizador

    del cuerpo para poder llegar

    un estado tan interesante e

    idlico como lo es el relax.

    each individual, we will get

    into the human body, how

    it works... and trying to get

    these reactions to differents

    stimuli which act as a catalyst

    in the body to reach a state as

    interesting and idyllic as relax

    is.

  • La meta es conformar un es-

    pacio que construya este ca-

    talizador del cuerpo hacia el

    relax. Por eso la instalacin

    se basa en la interaccin de la

    propia instalacin con los sen-

    tidos. Esta estrecha relacin

    se generar mediante deter-

    minados factores ambienta-

    les, dispuestos para generar

    un espacio de relax en su con-

    cepto ms puro... incitando a

    la mente a relajarse de forma

    inconsciente e ingenua.

    Para todo ello se han realiza-

    do diversas vas de investiga-

    cin con el objetivo de utilizar

    todos los sentidos del cuerpo

    humano hacia una misma di-

    reccin... la relajacin.

    The goal is to construct a

    space that builds this catalyst

    the body to relax. So the

    installation is based on the

    interaction of the installation

    itself with all our sense. This

    close relationship is generated

    by certain environmental

    factors, arranged to generate a

    relaxing space in its most pure

    concept... inciting the mind to

    relax in an unconscious and

    naive way.

    For all these issues, there have

    been several lines of research

    in order to use all the senses of

    the human body in the same

    direction ... relaxation.

  • El primero de ellos es el tac-

    to, donde la experimentacin

    de la gravedad cero, sin pre-

    siones, ni fuerzas hace que

    el propio cuerpo entre en un

    estado pausado, donde el flu-

    jo de energas es inexistente.

    Otra vertiente de investiga-

    cin ha sido la vista, donde

    es la luz verde tenue aumenta

    la produccin de dopamina

    en el cerebro y proporcionan

    una sensacin calmante. Jun-

    to con esta, la generacin de

    un cielo azul artificial ayuda

    a crear una forma leve de la

    privacin sensorial que ayu-

    da al ser humano a dirigir la

    atencin hacia su yo interior...

    poco a poco evadindose.

    The first one is touch where

    experiencing zero gravity,

    no pressure, no strength...

    causes the body to initiate a

    process of change towards

    a paused state, where the

    energy flow is nonexistent.

    Another strand of research

    has been the view, where the

    dim green light increases the

    production of dopamine in the

    brain and provide a soothing

    feeling. Along with this, the

    generation of an artificial blue

    sky helps to create a mild

    form of sensory deprivation

    which helps humans to draw

    attention to our inner self...

    gradually escaping.

  • El tercero de los sentidos es-

    tudiados fue el olfato, donde

    numerosos estudios revelan

    que el olor ctrico, entre otros,

    modifica la actividad de los

    genes y la qumica sangunea

    de tal modo que se reducen

    los niveles de estrs, debido a

    la aspiracin de linalool, el cual

    restablece los niveles elevados

    de neutrofilos y linfocitos que

    acompaan al estrs a valores

    casi normales. Adems, sus

    investigaciones revelan que in-

    halar esta sustancia reduce la

    actividad de ms de cien ge-

    nes vinculados al estrs.

    Finalmente se realiz el estu-

    dio del sonido, que desvel

    que, concentrndote en los

    sonidos de tu organismo, y

    The third sense studied, was

    the smell, where numerous

    studies reveal that citric odor,

    among others, modifies

    the gene activity and blood

    chemistry thereby reducing

    stress levels. This is due to

    aspiration of linalool, which

    restores elevated levels of

    neutrophils and lymphocytes

    which accompany stress

    to almost normal values.

    Moreover, their research

    shows that inhaling this

    substance reduces the activity

    of more than one hundred

    genes linked to stress.

    Finally, the study of sound,

    which revealed that,

    concentrating on the sounds

    of your body, and trying to feel

  • tratando de sentir la circula-

    cin de la sangre por tus ex-

    tremidades ayuda a despejar

    la mente y dejarla en blanco.

    Esto equivale a un potente

    proceso de relajacin. Por otra

    parte, varios estudios cient-

    ficos anuncian que determi-

    nados ritmos y melodas son

    relajantes. Estos se centran

    en una tipologa de meloda

    que tiene como punto fuerte

    la variacin del tempo de la

    cancin a uno ms lento de

    forma progresiva. Esto genera

    una adaptacin inconsciente

    de nuestro cuerpo al ritmo, de

    forma que el organismo se re-

    laja de forma progresiva mien-

    tras el ritmo se ralentiza.

    the flow of blood through your

    limbs helps clear the mind and

    leave it blank. This equates to

    a powerful relaxation process.

    Moreover, several studies

    scientists announce that

    certain rhythms and melodies

    are relaxing. These scientific

    studies focus on a type of

    melody whose strong point

    is the change in tempo of the

    song ino one progressively

    slower. This change in the song

    generates an unconscious

    adaptation of the body to the

    rhythm of the song itself, so

    that the body gradually relaxes

    while the rhythm of the melody

    slows.

  • Actualmente en la sociedad

    de bienestar que vivimos no

    nos damos cuenta del ver-

    dadero valor del relax. La so-

    ciedad vive en un constante y

    vertiginoso cambio de estados

    de emocin, donde podemos

    pasar del estrs al relax sin

    siquiera darnos cuenta. Junto

    con esto, tambin podemos

    darnos cuenta que el bienes-

    tar con el que vivimos en la

    cultura mediterrnea es mayor

    que en otros sitios, por lo que

    infravaloramos el relax por de-

    finicin, como concepto.

    Debido a esto, se ha querido

    poner en valor el concepto de

    relax, y por esto se ha deci-

    dido construir una instalacin

    donde se pueda ver el con-

    Currently in the welfare society

    we live in, we do not realize

    the true value of relaxation.

    Society lives in a constant

    and rapid change of emotion

    state, where we can go from

    stress to relaxation without

    even realizing it. Along with

    this, we also realize that the

    wellness which is living in

    the Mediterranean culture

    nowadays is greater than

    elsewhere. So relaxation, here,

    is undervalued by definition, as

    a concept.

    Because of this, we have

    tried to focus on the concept

    of relaxation, and so it was

    decided to construct an

    installation where you can

    see the contrast between

  • opposites, or at least

    contradictory, such as the

    burden, stress, anxiety... and

    relax. To build this difference

    and creating these emotions

    was thought that could be

    done with multiple places,

    where each define a concept

    in its purest form. Get to define

    an emotion through a space

    and conditions that this has.

    The first of the space, so it

    will be the defining stress,

    anxiety, the burden... for, a

    posteriori, to truly appreciate

    the relaxation as a concept.

    This space will be dismayed,

    where many
