Growing Architecture and Constructed Nature
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
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.
