Aimed at enriching the lives of humans, one of the species in National Park City, by helping keep a healthy sleep schedule. The main project site is focused in Canningtown with various docking locations along the River Lea and the Thames.

Circadia City Manifesto In the year 2050 transportation will have dramatically changed in efficiency with self driving cars, hyperloops, and the proposed 24/7 transportation, along with London’s two new cross rails spanning from East to West London. With such changes how will they affect Londoners? Would people’s schedules differ and open more possibilities with all day access to transportation? In addition to these questions. London’s population will grow to 11 million, growing 30%. That means growing economy, and a growing transport, and workforce to support all of these factors. In 2050 more than ever will workers be pushing their limits and their biology to keep up with all of these changes. One wonders if a 24 hour london could increase businesses and jobs to operate in more flexible hours and provide a reliability. A main sector that would be predicted to grow is transportation. As well as provide more opportunities for service industries, and food. As of today many londoner’s already experience a common side effect of the current economic demands. Lack of sleep. 30% of the population does not receive the proper amount of sleep while 27% suffers from insomnia. These numbers don’t just offer threats to the work forces’ health but also productivity. 11 million londoners means that only more people will find themselves living with a lack of sleep, poor sleep schedules, and insomnia. Sleep is such a critical part of the lives of business and it’s workers, by 2050 it should be prioritized as much as physical fitness, diets, and mental health. The site provides a solution to this problem and inequality of health priorities, putting sleep to the very top. The project will provide spaces for users who are suffering from insomnia, disrupted circadian rhythm and general needs for sleep. These three levels are important in the cities sleep problem. The first is insomniacs. Experts say, that if you can’t fall asleep within the first 30 minutes of trying to fall asleep it is best to do a calming activity in the meantime. The misunderstood group requires attention to help facilitate sleep for them or offer a space for them to functioning in their usual hours. Mean time space, before they can enter the stages of sleep. The spaces in the project that will be designed for them will include non stimulating characteristics to allow them to ease into the sleep mentality, as well as calming activities. These spaces are open and allow for an ambiance to relax the visitor but allow a space that can be accessed 24/7 and always provide the drowsy inducing space. The spaces will facilitate a circadian rhythm reset. Allowing one to go through multiple sleep cycles to set them up to have a proper rhythm that may better fit to their schedules. These spaces will be used for up to 8-9 hours and will be smaller in scale as their are more intimate spaces so the user can feel more secure in the vulnerable state of sleep. These spaces will be stationary. To allow the user to use it without any worry or bother. More so of a sleep clinic. The visitor may go in book an appointment and set up the hours or time frames they wish their circadian rhythms to follow. This stage will also include mini facilities to help them wake up. These small wake up spaces will provide stimulating features to wake up the user and let them begin the waking cycle of the circadian rhythm. The third space will be for 20 minutes to 2 hours of use. To allow the range of a power nap to a longer more intense nap. These will be move spaces located all around the cities waterfront. Providing access to the many workers of london finding themselves in need of some rest so they can resume to their jobs of activities more energized and productive. These pods will allow the user the choice of time and location of the sleep they need. This scheme in theory would be embraced by businesses the same way they have gym office gym amenities and healthy food options in the workplace, as businesses want their employees to be as healthy as possible in order to do the best work possible. The same way the sleep cycle works in a seamless relationship with the other stages so will the design of the sites. Each one working with the other and allow opportunities of uses to reach max sleep quality and times to best suit ones lifestyle.

Objective: Easy access to ideal napping space.

Location: London, Canary Wharf Size: 1,002 square meters Project: Better utilize the River Thames as a space and infrastructure to improve sleep health as apart of Circadia City. Design: Strategically placed jetties and surrounding greenery to create a system of boats that can be used as sleep or nap pods. Taking advantage of the river movements to facilitate sleep. The surrounding greenery and space to the jetties use planting to aid relaxation and signify the nap jetties. Planting used to clean the air, water, and create lush aesthetic for the space, where one could almost believe they aren’t in London anymore but nearing a dreamscape.

Design: A Maze that also serves as a sculpture park. A confusing labrynth was created to make the user feel disorientated and more aware of their surroundings, in order to wake you up. The sculptures are allocated in  specific locations to shock the user and keep the maze  amusing and surprising. At the center is a coffee shop to add caffeine to the wake up stage.
