Film | Making | Space
Making Space Series
Monday 13 February 2017
6.30 — 8.30pm
During this evening of short screenings and performances, our contributors explore how filmmaking can open up new ways of thinking about architecture.
Established practices of drawing in the visual representation of architecture tend to make us think of space outside time. They limit not only our communication of temporal aspects of architecture, but also design thinking. Introducing the dimension of time through film can bring a space to life. Used as both a creative and critical design tool, film can generate an affective relationship with architecture, a form of empathy with the building.
Film can capture the atmosphere of a space, the additive layers of weathering and the regular patterns of light and shadow cast on the skin of a building. Equally it can unlock the story-telling and emotive potential of design, reveal traces of history and personal memories and frame the daily intimacy of occupation, as well as accentuate and contextualise the link between architecture and identity.
Join us for an evening of short screenings, performances and discussion to explore how filmmaking can open up new ways of thinking about architecture.
