2003-2004 Cartographies - Photographic Transformations - Reading and Transforming the Landscape

Architecture Class Städelschule 2003-2004

Models as tools and artefact. Experimental approach based on spatial experiments coming from a research on Rodin's sculptural work and an analysis of a Garden. It begins with mapping techniques and translate the materials through abstraction processes into new constructions in third and four dimension, dealing with "cuts" and "gaps" in the case of Rodin's sculptures and phenomena of "Growth" in the analysis of the enclosed garden of the Glass House by Lina Bo-Bardi.  New topographies, suggest the reconfiguration of spatial bodies. It is used 3D rotation, translation, parts reconnections, introducing as well the notion of interface and idea of the landscape in expanded means.
