NO ARCHITECTURE / Maindeck
Derived from Konstantin Melnikov’s proposed architecture of a “Sonata of Sleep”, an architecture of sleep from 1929, STWST developed the Sleep Tunnel. Melnikovs idea of the Sonata of Sleep meant a recuperation area for factory workers of the 20ies - a laboratory of sleep, a sanatorium and area of nature experience. This utopian idea will be combined with Stadtwerkstatts credo of “No Architects”. There will be a sleep tunnel of no dimension, a no-architecture of transparent relationship between inside and outside, an unprotected area of sleeping entities and an open call to get to sleep during Ars Electronica.
The Sleep Tunnel will be the place to see and listen “Sleep Battle”.
