Ok, here is the David Byrne’s installation that I missed while being in NY!
Playing the Building is a sound installation in which the building itself is converted into a giant musical instrument. Different types of devices are attached to the building structure in order to make these elements produce the sounds.
Can architecture get closer to music than this?
Here is another film about a beautiful peace of architecture.
As Berman describes in the film, the building is just a door, the door in the woods.
In a way that absence of the building makes it an enigmatic presence. Like a literary vision of the magical door to another world.
The building designed as a framework for experiencing the surrounding is a very inspiring and peaceful space where the nature and light is directly involved in this architectural experience.
What is worth mentioning is the fact that this film by David Vegezzi is part of a series of short films initiated by C-Lab showcasing young directors, video artists, animators, and motion graphics designers.
C-Lab, the Columbia Laboratory for Architectural Broadcasting, is an experimental research unit at
Anyway, here through this beautifully filmed material C-Lab with David Vegezzi bring this poetic architecture to much broader audience than just architects!
More on C-Lab soon, meantime no matter whether you are an architect or not, I hope you will enjoy the film!
Today I was officially offered a visiting studio tutor position at Birmingham School of Architecture.
Must say that I’m really excited!
