Term 1 ended on my exploration of the address, and consequently the body, leaving us with the following statement:
“In his (William Forsythe) choreographic material… he has added the notion of decentralization: movement can take place around a centre either in the body (that doesn’t need to exist anatomically), or outside of the body: a virtual centre. Moving through his perception of space, Forsythe creates not one but many kinespheres that change size, multiply, fragment, collapse and disappear swiftly.”
Our architecture must respond to this understanding.
PROVIDE THE INDIVIDUAL WITH ONE ADDRESS, YET MULTIPLE CENTRES.
This will not be achieved through the idea of co-ownership/sharing/timeshare through which the individual can have multiple residences, yet still officially linked to ONE address. However, I will try to gradually undo our current USE of architecture that established the address system in place, and consequently the relationship between a citizen and his property.
The current home plan. One front door.
Lose the focus of the individual front door. Externalize the doors, provide the individual with multiple doors of equal hierarchy (program aside).
Apply this again, yet pull the doors further apart – separate the spaces. It’s still one home, occupied by one individual but no longer organized in a cluster with one centre.
A step further, the address can be split up across buildings, neighbourhoods, cities. How to create a system that would allow for the accumulation of all these spaces to constitute ONE address…
WHERE IS THE BODY?
PANNING FORMAT. ITERATION 1:
The body of the book as a fixed square, and the flaps (containing mostly text) opening up to break up the whole images.
The idea is that by the time the book is gone through, there will be text bleeding out of the square format from all sides (3 sheets below).
