AZURE’s November/December edition explores some of the category’s most innovative spaces, from a new model of urban retreat by Ace Hotel in New York City to a cutting-edge concept store in Lisbon.

Have our tech-infused lives caused us to forget the benefits and pleasures of losing ourselves in states of repose and reverie?

New Circadia (adventures in mental spelunking) will inaugurate the new Architecture and Design Gallery at the Daniels Faculty by transforming it into a  cave-like atmosphere — a soft utopia.

Curated by Professor Richard Sommer and New York-based designers, Pillow Culture, the immersive installation prompts participants to ask: Have our tech-infused lives caused us to forget the benefits and pleasures of losing ourselves in states of repose and reverie? What would happen if we disconnected from standard time and external stimuli within a dream-like space specifically designed for relaxation, reflection, and repose?

New Circadia (an approximate translation from Latin for “New Day”) has been conceived to engage the city and the University of Toronto community alike in an immersive environment — an underground, cave-like, soft utopia.
