(FRAG)02b: Kaleidobelge

threeLeft5

Places and moments which present themselves naturally during nightwalks and in forays through forests soothe the ever running mind. Moments offering themselves by ‘just being present, at a certain spot in time and space’ are opening the self up to live and perceive in simplicity.

(FRAG)02v: Kaleidovoyage

Kaleidovoyage: wondrous collages as fragments of architecture visits. Are these embodiments of memories or alternative realities? Is this how a four dimensional being looks upon our three dimensions?

Research by design by architect Peter Firman about a maximum spatial experience on an ordinary parking lot.

The installation is an anti-decorum of ‘five rooms’ from where one can observe and live the historic surroundings of Mechelen (Malines).

At the same time the five rooms enable the visitor to define his own relationship and distance towards like-minded or passers-by.

 

 

 

 

 

(Process)02: Tactics

threeRight10

The research seminar TACTICS (master (interior) architecture UHasselt Fac-ARK) investigates the exact and strategic use of drawings and models for the discovery of possibilities within the creation of architecture through the transformation and presentation of a project by creation of images and scale models. In 2015 we cooperated with Pierre Hebbelinck and presented the results of our explorations in an exhibition at his atelier.

(Process)01: 216cc Architecture

threeRight8

216cc architecture is the result of an exercise in analyzing architecture where 2nd bachelor architecture students create a traveling group exhibition. Basis of the exercise is the documentation available in the university library. Per project three small models (with a maximum volume of 216 cubic centimeters) are made and collected in one protecting poplar wood showcase/box. The exhibition is presented and discussed outside the university to bring out our knowledge and bring in external reflection.
