Explore Format


For the past 3 days I am trying to Explore my format. I went back to the idea of the book because I felt that at the end of term 1 I was rushing, I didn’t have time to explore it and I don’t like to leave things unfinished. :)

So….I would like to explore what a cinematic-architectural experience could be….

The red box depicts the volume of the book. The size of it is A2 with an aspect ratio 16:9 (cinematic aspect ratio).  The idea is that while you are flipping the book you are moving through different spaces which in reality are not necessarily link to each other. By that means, the page represents a total and instantaneous displacement of one field of vision with another, a displacement that sometimes also entails a jump forward or backward in time as well as space.(an instantaneous displacement that we usually experience with movies.)

    In my view the first reference works because everything is hided by the pages, you dont know where you are going to end up. The passage is revealed just once you turn the page. THis is why, I think your model should always be represented as a section of it. Vertical or horizontal does not matter, better if it can do both actually, but I would not show the whole space to anyone. In this way you can show one layer after another and then arrange the space how you like. I can see a series of elevations in a video, one after another, and then ending with a zooming out of the whole model as you show it now to us.
