Exploring Architecture: Time, Photography and Virtuality

Abstract [en]

The thesis project explores the architectural themes of time and virtuality in two parts. The first theme - time - is investigated through a photographical study of Kulturhuset in Stockholm, searching for physical traces of change. The study also reveals a faster time scale relating to the inhabitants and users of space. 

The second part of the project relates to the photographs, building on the technique of the camera obscura to investigate the theme of virtuality. Through three full scale tests and different experiments, an attempt was made to manipulate the border between the physical and the virtual, demonstrated in a room obscura built up at the courtyard of the School of Architecture during the Diploma Days in June 2015. 

The project moves from the observational part of the photograph into a physical exploration of what architecture is, how it works and possibly what it could be, from virtual to physical and back again. As a whole, the project is a collection of thoughts, of sights, of connections and of experiences.

Abstract [sv]

Examensarbetet undersöker de arkitektoniska begreppen tid och virtualitet i två delar. Det första temat - tid - undersöks genom en fotografisk studie av Kulturhuset i Stockholm, ett sökande efter fysiska spår av förändring. Studien visar också en snabbare tidsskala som relaterar till användaren och brukaren av rummet.

Den andra delen av projektet utgår från fotografierna och använder camera obscurans teknik för att undersöka temat virtualitet. Genom tre fullskaliga tester och olika experiment prövades gränsen mellan det fysiska och det virtuella, och demonstrerades slutligen i ett rum obscura som byggts upp på gården i Arkitekturskolan under Diploma Days, juni 2015.

Projektet rör sig från ett observerande i fotografiet till en fysisk undersökning av vad arkitektur är, hur arkitektur fungerar och eventuellt vad det skulle kunna vara, från det virtuella till det fysiska och tillbaka igen. Som helhet är projektet en samling tankar, sevärdheter, kopplingar och erfarenheter.
