CUT deals with the construction of panoramas of cinema and the invention of chambers of mythical personas. CUT is about domesticating computer code and exercising a personal code to talk about architecture. This course thinks of panoramas as a new kind of richness with which to qualify spaces and times. The availability of online videos in large quantities, coupled with the techniques to deal with them all at once, present a promising scenario for architecture, as videos are alive and talking to us.This course celebrates this scenario by operating millions of clips and frames extracted from a private vidéothèque and constructing panoramas with them. Talking goes beyond a panorama, though, it comes from a position, has a direction and follows a code. This course exercises talking about architecture by qualifying chambers from a panoramic view.

CUT is roughly divided in two. First, students will be introduced to ready-made notebooks of computer code to construct panoramas, many of them. These notebooks implement Machine Learning techniques that characterize and make operable the vidéothèque. Later on, a constellation of mythical personas will be introduced, and students will exercise their code by inventing the profile of a chamber in a deity’s image via the panoramas.

Lastly, each student will present his/her chamber in the form of a booklet.

The only requirement is to have a laptop with an internet connection and some GB of free space.
