Aim of course

The lecture is meant to be a tool for the architectural survey of space and deals with all types of digital media, video, photography to create an interdisciplinary approach to space.

Visual, acoustic and tactile framing of existing sequences of space.

Sequences, haptics and atmospheres should be analysed and captured via photography and video.

Intentional perception and recording of given spaces, creation of a film including position schemes (=movement through space) that illustrates human seeing and movement.

PLEASE BRING YOUR LAPTOP TO THE FIRST MEETING - WORKSHOP! (more info via mail after the registration of the course is finished)

Subject of course

An architectural dissection cuts a building into pieces and abstracts 3-dimensional spaces into a 2-dimensional plane. In this lecture a given space will be cut into pieces by moving through the space. This created movement should be shown and analytically illustrated.

By creating photgraphic takes of 25 frames per second the students will work with a given or chosen space in an analytical way. In a following step, the material will be interpreted and new perspectives to common space will be created.

"Architecture as sequence"

Project for the winterterm 2018/19: infrastructures, (train)station, velocity, mobility, space-time

Methods like sequential movement, as well as photographic-cinematic approach towards prior ananlyzed space configurations and space intersections should be tested and compared with each other.

Topics: horizontal and vertical space configurations, construction, facade, material.

Presence at the CONCEPT PRESENTATION and TWO WORKSHOPS is MANDATORY! (please check the schedule of the course for your availability!)

One person for each project, groups of 2 students per theme can be discussed according to the concept and workload of the project.

The date for the visit of the project, where we will collect the raw footage for your final film, will be announced shortly and needs to be immediately after the first meeting. (Planning of the trip needs to be done by the participants themselves)

An additional meeting can be arranged by mail if necessary or according to all participants we can add further meetings.

Examination modalities

conceptual approach, illustration of movement trajectories through the selected space, digital data (photo and film files)

Generation of an stop-motion-animation in Premiere and/or After Effects. The movement through the dissected space can be shown in the film or the examination of the found space configurations.
