Combining PNEUmatic (air-flatable) architecture with a noMAD ethos, "Pneumad" enacts a form of antiheroic desire to escape permanence, solidity and place-bound dwelling. Recalling the revolutionary experimental fervor of 1968, but with twenty-first century technical sophistication, "Pneumad" is prototype for nomads who want to spread out. The inflatable offers one distinct advantage-it is not limited by the dimensions and volume of the vehicle itself. Complementing the mobile structure, "Pneumad" has no interior plan, no fixed infrastructure-everything moves. MOD's "Soft Stones" allow the nomad to resist fixity inside as well as out.
