Discuss and analyse cinematographic developments and their most significant relevance in architecture which will allow for a more integrated approach to architecture and understanding of the fusion between film and architecture, and the exploration of space, time, and narrative relationships.

• Understand and apply inherent structural and conceptual similarities and differences in film and architecture by creating architectural storyboards and film scripts

• Apply basic film making skills employing analog and digital techniques/technologies and exploring sound as an architectural element and its role in defining and layering time.

• Design constructions and produce architectural compositions based on the spatial sequences derived from the concepts of temporality in form of architectural drawings/diagrams and models. 

Inhalt der Lehrveranstaltung

Temporal Architectures is interdisciplinary approach that merges the realms of film and architecture to explore the dynamic relationship between space, time, and narrative. This concept offers a versatile system for creative exploration, pushing the boundaries of traditional architectural design and storytelling. At its core, the idea of Temporal Architectures focuses on how architectural spaces can become more than just static structures; they can evolve and transform, similar to the temporal progression in film. This concept encourages students to think beyond the conventional notions of architecture as something fixed, inviting them to envision spaces that breathe, evolve, and engage with their occupants over time. By intertwining the principles of film and architecture, students are encouraged to consider several experimental dimensions: Narrative Environment: Temporal Architectures prompts as a concept requires students/designers to craft spaces that communicate stories. Just as a film's plot unfolds through scenes, spaces can be designed to reveal their narratives through changing configurations, lighting, materials, and spatial sequences. This introduces an element of suspense and intrigue, inviting occupants to actively engage with and interpret their surroundings. Dynamic Transformation: Inspired by the dynamic nature of film editing and sequencing, students explore how architectural elements can change and adapt. Walls that shift, floors that reconfigure, and ceilings that morph can all be orchestrated to provide different experiences within a single space. This adds an element of surprise and wonder, as occupants witness and engage with the gradual transformation of their environment. Temporal Juxtaposition: Similar to editing techniques in film that juxtapose different scenes, Temporal Architectures can explore the concept of temporal layers within a single space. Students can experiment with overlapping time periods, allowing occupants to visually and experientially traverse different eras or moments within the same physical setting. Emotional Resonance: Just as films evoke emotions through visual and auditory cues, Temporal Architectures can be designed to evoke emotional responses. The evolving spaces can heighten occupants' senses and immerse them in an emotional journey, creating a profound and memorable experience. Adaptive Interaction: With the use of digital and analog technology, students can immerse into interactive elements that respond to occupants' presence or gestures. These interactions can trigger changes in the architectural environment, fostering a sense of agency and engagement. Temporal Continuity: The concept encourages students to think about how different spaces within a larger complex can be woven together through temporal continuity. Just as a film's plot threads various scenes together, students will explore how dynamic spaces create a cohesive and interconnected architectural experience In a broader context, Temporal Architectures aligns with notions of experiential design and adaptability. It introduces a new dimension to architectural discourse, challenging designers to think beyond conventional static forms and encouraging them to create immersive environments that blur the lines between space and time. This concept offers exciting opportunities for collaboration between architects, filmmakers, scenographers, and technologists. It envisions a future where architectural spaces become living, breathing narratives, engaging occupants on a journey through time, emotion, and imagination. As the boundaries between disciplines continue to blur, Temporal Architectures offers a visionary and interdisciplinary path for the evolution of architectural design and storytelling. 


Class lectures, discussions, presentations, in class design and review sessions, viewing of film sequences, possible guest speaker, group and individual projects Class lectures on theory and history of filmmaking in conjunction with architecture, readings , historical examples and display of film-sequences (case studies) to discuss conceptual correlations between film and architecture and to extract technics which are employed to create specific effects, especially related to concepts of temporality and Temporal Architectures. Translation of filmic space into architectural proposals Production of architectural drawings and diagrams based on space-movement studies Analysing architectural projects that incorporate temporal layers, discussing how different eras or narratives are visually and experientially integrated within a single space. Lectures and workshops on basic screenwriting, photography and editing skills Design Projects/Collaborative Projects: hands-on design projects that challenge students to create architectural spaces that tell narratives through changing elements like configurations, lighting, and materials. students are required to present their designs to the class, explaining the narrative intent behind their design choices and how they effectively communicate stories. There will be review sessions to collectively discuss and progress each project. Working with small scale design challenges that require students to design spaces with overlapping temporal narratives, demonstrating their ability to create immersive environments. Students will design spaces with temporal layers that allow occupants to visually and experientially navigate different time periods. They will execute this concept by designing spaces where multiple temporal narratives coexist within the same environment.
