References for thinking about the continuos interior, creating climates and vast-ness indoors.

Phillipe Rahm –

“There’s a kind of misunderstanding of what architecture is,” Rahm says. “It’s not to design solid shape and form, it’s to design climate.” Rahm creates spaces, parks and buildings that act as kind of an amusement park of climatic zones his work has been described as meteorological architecture.

Might not climate be a new architectural language, a language for architecture rethought with meteorology in mind? Might it be possible to imagine climatic phenomena such as convection, conduction or evaporation for example as new tools for architectural composition? Could vapour, heat or light become the new bricks of contemporary construction?”

Bringing these ideas into the idea of the continuous interior is interesting, to create manipulable environments that mirror what the outside once was creating vastness in the interior.

James Turrell – using light to define or flatten space, interesting techniques to make the interiors look kind of ‘other’.

Olafur Eliasson – the weather project, the presence of a faux sun creates an atmosphere were users lie down and ‘bask’ in the light.

Theo Angelopoulos, Landscape in the Mist, 1988 and Ulysses Gaze 1995

Also the killer mist film

everyone hiding in the interior from the mist, although on further googling, the mist has some crazy monster with tentacles living in it, snatching people.

    Love the references galore!! …. I finally found these images I wanted to send you of desert-storm/war-pollution that was swept over Cyprus from Syria last year! Posting them on What’s App group now ;)

    Also the final scenes in “Children of Men” where he gets her and tthe baby on the boat from Bexhill or wherever they were and are waiting for the ship to appear. Also very smoggy-misty

    Oh ! you should definitely check the dust storm that occurred in Australia recently – just thought about it. As far as I remember, it comes after several meteorological perturbations build up.
