Summer Term 2005
Supervising Professor: Rüdiger Lainer, Academy Of Fine Arts Vienna
The main idea was to develope a building which design concept/parameters are directly connected to its use. In this case we needed to design a dancing academy in an outscirt of vienna. It was very necessary for me to show the relationship of the two dancers which appear while dancing and interprate them into solid structures / buildings. I liked the idea of capturing significant sequenses from a dance movie like Dirty Dancing and than interprate them into abstract sections. The builing volumes start appearing through a linear placing of the sections. After generting the two buildings volumes out of the “captured sections” the given programs / statics / functional parameters start having an impact on the layout of the sections.
Designsteps: – capturing bodies from a dance movie – interprate the outlines of the two dancing bodies into abstract sections – placing them on site in an linear arrangement – developing the two building volumes with the given programs out of the placed sections
