This Digital Detox Retreat allows the public to escape the stress and anti-social behaviours of our society today, getting them back in touch to a time when we didn’t depend on technology and get people to “look up”. Through taking my time on the train to look up from my phone I could see that we depend on our devices for a lot of the small and big things in our lives. My proposal consists of activities that don’t involve technology such as swimming and cooking. At the heart of the building is the “Amber Space” where not only does it focus on getting people communicating with each other in person again but also creating a peaceful environment through lighting the space with candles.
