CASE STUDY 12
If one takes a media façade of the dimension height-length 1:8, it is possible to fold it into a cube. Inside and outside of the strip change positions several times in the spatial, folded composition. The design results into media architecture, more than just a media façade.
See the folded pixel animation at youtube as well.
The ‘Case Studies’ project is a utopian architecture project by Maurer United Architects [MUA] that is being developed under the umbrella of BALTAN’s Poème Numérique research programme. For one year, MUA has developed one utopian idea every month, resulting into twelve different sketches.
CASE STUDY 11
If one writes the word ‘Poeme Numerique’ in the Labfont* character type, a labyrinth floor plan comes into being. If one would use this floor plan as a roof plan, than this would need to be supported by walls with door openings, resulting in an even more complex labyrinth floor plan.
CASE STUDY 10
If one applies a see-through media façade all around one’s individual residence, it would become interesting to continue this strip also on the inside. In the example floor plan, this strip would provide 30 large (full height) wide-screen tv channels at once. If one would chose 30 favorite public broadcasting channels, all these channels would be visible at once. Instead of zapping, it becomes logic to browse through the channels, by walking through the residence or by moving the content to the left or right.
CASE STUDY 9
If one takes the painting of Theo van Doesburg ‘Contra-Compositie met dissonanten XVI’ from 1925 and translates it to a spatial composition, a new experience of the work will be generated. (more…)
CASE STUDY 8
If one projects a MONDRIAAN painting on the wall, and use a computer to generate the depth lines according to the position of the viewer (tracked by a sensor), a virtual depth will be visible.
