ASYMPTOTE uses architectonic sites that are authentic to the era of socialism. At the basis of the project lies a historical foundation that collaborates with a fictional scenario to blur the lines between reality and memory. All body form in the project is folded within the space to shape a coherent geometrical composition, a symbol of the regime itself. Each person is stripped off their own individuality to become a unified form, where every difference becomes an anomaly in the system.
