INTRODUCTION Morpho-Ecologies (ME) MORPHO combines Morphology and Morphogenesis, the first is about the study of forms in a biological sense, and the second is about the controlled spatial distribution of cells during an organism’s development. ME aims to “achieve

morphological complexity and performative capacity in material constituents without separating formation from materialization processes”.

ME seeks to accelerate the evolution of architectural environments so that ‘the relation of form and space to program, acknowledges the dynamic patterns of human habitation.’


ECOLOGIES refers to the “relationships between humans and their physical and social

environments”.

The oneiric house as hermitage “To make their home in the world, that is, to build, human beings must gain more than physical control, they must establish spiritual control. To do so they must wrest order from what at first seems contingent, fleeting, and confusing, transforming chaos into cosmos.” Karsten Harries The hermit’s house is a space for solitude, imagination, and creativity where the daydreamer takes refuge and dreaming is sheltered

The oneiric house as stage The theatre is showcased on the stage where worlds are created and the realm of make believe is presented. The stage (like film and music) becomes a clear event highlighting movement | temporal progression | the senses | and the threshold of reality. Tschumi’s dictum: “there is no space without event”, has led to spatial consideration being given to time, action and movement in architecture. Architecture is perceived as space-influx and not as a fixed and enduring object.

LIRA MOLAPO

Lira's album ‘Soul in Mind' serves as the seed, or initiator, in the development of a unique design process translating the private dreamspace into the public dreamstage through architectural structure and machinery.


Lira’s voice is an oneiric machine that carries the listener away from their daily struggles into a world filled with passion, longevity, and optimism.

The body is transcended and the spirit freed.

Lira deals with her own challenges and spiritual development as a woman, however she communicates them in the public realm.


Uexkull argues that by basing ourselves in permanent immovable structures we have disrupted our experience of space. Deleuze is convinced that we no longer relate to these typological structures as contemporary human life no-longer caters for separate or distinct functions. Uexkull describes a new type of space where we have a series of existential encounters with our surroundings, which are unique for every organism. Looking at an individual’s experience of space provides the opportunity to make space much more personal, free from the associations of typological function or social manipulation.

To actively engage the user, architecture needs to explore sensory stimulation, as well as the development of responsive systems, so that we can regain control of our environment.

The oneiric house as hermitage From private to public i. Perhaps we cannot be successful solitaries - though all of us are solitaries in the end. ii. In “Dialectics of Outside and Inside�, Bachelard says, being is all around us, not circumscribed. We are not the centre of being, nor is anything else, for that matter. iii. Hence there is neither being-here nor being-there. iv. Modern humanity goes from claustrophobia to agoraphobia.
