Our project 'to relax' is essentially an experiential staircase up to a hammock where one can fully escape the tribulations of everyday life and relax. The ten steps up all feature a different material, which will allow for a different experience underfoot. They range from hard (concrete) to soft (the netting of the hammock). We have proposed to build the structure out of 3/4 black steel pipe, connected at the corners with plumbing fittings. Another aspect of our project, is the enjoyment of heat. We felt that heat could help someone relax. The inner core of the structure could be filled with hot water supplied by a pump/ heater, this would radiate heat upwards to the person enjoying the hammock.
