Michael Stevens – Crab Nebula Flock House, Bemis Center – Old Market

Design by Michael Stevens


Michael Stevens, University of Nebraska, Omaha, embeds this description into a rendering of Flock House.

Crab Nebula

The design features unfolding arms that when extended, reveal a stored hammock. The user may lie in the hammock and star gaze.

The user sits on the central platform as the arms are extended, lifting them toward the cosmos.

The arms are pressure-activated and are triggered by weight on the central plate.

An outrigger design provides stability.
