In the architectural context, ergonomic actuation is found in things like push bar opening mechanisms on fire exit doors and small lips that allow us to open and close the window. Most of these actuations happen on a small scale, with a binary agenda (e.g. open or closed). What does it look like when an actuated architectural object is anti-ergonomic where the burden of efficiency is relieved from an architectural actuation and how does it open the possibility of multiple states. This project captures a micro-architecture that is both parasitic and augmentative to an existing architectural unit: the doorway.
