Rest - To cease work or an activity in order to relax, recuperate and reflect.
Play - To engage in an activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than for a practical purpose.

Both stimulate different types of imagination therefore the architecture needed to provide a space where both can occur simultaneously. The experiential surface provides a medium for exploration and curiosity while allowing for a degree of control. The form is controlled by artificial intelligence to provide an environment for both activities. When children rest on the surface it will create a cocoon-like enclosure where their dreams are able to be extracted, analyzed and harnessed. Based on the dreams produced, the surface will change its form and with the aid of the digital technology, will create a space where the active children can play in the dreams of others. The reality will be altered to create the dreamscape that the resting children have imagined which in turn will provide stimulation for those playing on the surface.
