Abstract [en]

In the research of this thesis the notions of Growing Architecture and Constructed Nature were developed and applied on an abstract level. In order to do so, I have produced a stop - motion / motion movie of around 7 1/2 minutes. The two different set designs – ‘The City of Vela’ and ‘Umland’ - each stand in relation to one of the investigated principles.

Constructed Nature [The City of Vela] describes an architecture, which is planned out and primarily based on ideas, while Growing Architecture [Umland] defines itself more through chance and integrates itself in moments of space. The two principles do not necessary oppose each other, but rather coexist.

Partly as a tribute to the beauty of the documents them­selves, I have placed drawings and models with varying degrees of architectural technicality in a more ab­stractly emotional setting and relation to each other. By aiming for a sub­jective, fragmented, imprecise and sometimes even incoherent representation of these ma­terials, I hoped to trigger the fantasy of the observer and leave room for imagination.
