In the summer of 2008, I traveled through Europe with fellow students and esteemed author/architect/theorist/professor, Deborah Ascher-Barnstone. This Architectural Study Tour spanned between The Netherlands, Germany, France, and Belgium. At it’s conclusion, we were asked to design an ‘armature’ that revealed what we learned on the trip.
The Life and Death of Architecture
I wanted to share my interest with ‘how we experience buildings’, so I built an ‘blob’ object. When first exhibited, it was the center of attention – people were drawn to it. After one week… two weeks… the experience was less powerful. This irregular soon became regular, and slowly, the object died.
There is a metaphor in there.
