PNEUMAD
Truck-A-Tecture @ KANEKO
Omaha, Nebraska, 2014

Combining PNEUmatic (air-inflatable) architecture with a noMADic ethos, the PNEUMAD enacts a form of anti-heroic desire to escape permanence, solidity and place-bound dwelling. Recalling the revolutionary-experimental fervor of 1968, but with 21st-century technical sophistication, PNEUMAD is prototype for nomads who want to spread out. The inflatable offers one distinct advantage - it is not limited by the dimensions and volume of the vehicle itself. A very compact trailer can let loose and relax. Complementing the mobile structure, PNEUMAD has no interior plan, no fixed infrastructure - everything moves. MOD’s Soft Stones allow the nomad to resist fixity inside as well as out.

PNEUMAD was designed as part of the Truck-A-Tecture exhibit at KANEKO.
