Taurus II is a concept space vessel/station. The design was driven by an assemblage of iterations of a torus. Its spatial capacities were explored in order to make an immersive installation that commemorates the achievements of the astronauts. It was important for it to be similar to its original scale so that viewers could be inspired just like the astronauts were. The scale is tightly tailored to the body, forcing the user to bend, crouch, touch, etc. The biggest challenge was to fit the installation in a complex multi-height space that is the design building of our campus.
