Master of Architecture (MArch)
In the spirit of Resier and Umemoto’s Atlas of Novel Tectonics, this work does not propose solutions to a stated problem in the field of architecture. Instead it provokes an entry into subjects that are taken for granted, yet are in dire need of re-framing in a postdigital age of architecture.
This proposal for speculative architectures that are only possible through animation, is antithesis to the format of the printed book. The format of this document assumes that it is not viewed alone but is treated as a behind the scenes companion to the 3 minute showreel “Framed Familiarity in 4 Acts”
Animation is better than simulation. Animation unhinged my treatment of digital matter. It presented a far more curious and ambiguous vision of the ubiquitous objects of our digital interfaces.
