Description

A series of selected everyday objects, reinterpreted and transformed into utopian architectural designs.

Continuing on from the Objets Trouvés module, in which everyday items were inserted into various large-scale visual contexts by means of montage, the aim of this advanced coursework was to articulate these recontextualised objects in utopian architectural project designs. After initially collecting everyday items with interesting forms, visually freeing them from their usual context and producing abstract representations of them via CAD line drawings, the students were asked to reinterpret a series of selected objects and to use these as a starting point for a fictitious architectural design. Based on the formal characteristics of the selected objects, an appropriate architectural programme (use and function) was to be articulated. The architectural design developed from this was to be coherently realised and convincingly presented by means of a perspective view, a CAD drawing and a freely selected location. In addition to creating new contexts in terms of both image and meaning, as well as teaching digital image-processing techniques, the aim was to show the students an experimental approach to design, based on ambiguous perception and interpretation of our familiar environment.
