ARCHITETTURE AUTOMATICHE

The two installations Wall and Space are the result of a work developed in USI Mendrisio Academy of architecture during the 2016-17 session, which ended with an exibition called “Sette Architetture Automatiche e altri esercizi” in Mendrisio Teatro dell’architettura.

“Seven automatic architectures and other exercises” by Atelier Blumer at Teatro dell’architettura:

All the works, included the two shown in the exibition, investigate, through automatic movements, the Freespace extreme conditions.

Wall, by Lorela Arapi, Stefano Clerici and Andrea Cappellaro, is a machine, which continuously creates minimal surfaces, composed by water and soap, made visible just by the light reflection. Sectors of a big wall, almost insubstantial, lasting few seconds.

Space, by Georgios Voutsis, generates, through a genetic algorithm based on geometrical rules and architectural types, infinite spatial variants, modifying the height of the 81 parallelepipeds which compose its orthogonal matrix.

Riccardo Blumer, in Mendrisio Academy of architecture, promotes experimental exercises which, through the contamination with other technical disciplines, produce reflections and thoughts on the evolution of architecture.

ARCHITETTURE AUTOMATICHE

Le due installazioni Wall e Space sono il frutto di un lavoro svolto presso l’Accademia di architettura USI di Mendrisio nell’anno accademico 2016-17 e terminato con un’esposizione dal titolo “Sette Architetture Automatiche e altri esercizi” al Teatro dell’architettura di Mendrisio.

Tutti i lavori, compresi i due esposti, indagano, attraverso movimenti automatici, le condizioni estreme del Freespace.

Wall, di Lorela Arapi, Stefano Clerici e Andrea Cappellaro, è una macchina che costruisce continuamente superfici minime, composte di acqua e sapone, che solo il riflesso della luce rende visibili. Settori di un grande muro, quasi inconsistenti, della durata di pochi istanti.

Space, di Georgios Voutsis, genera, attraverso un algoritmo genetico basato su regole geometriche e tipologie architettoniche, infinite varianti spaziali, modificando l’altezza degli 81 parallelepipedi che compongono la sua matrice ortogonale.

Riccardo Blumer nell’Accademia di architettura Mendrisio promuove esercizi sperimentali che, attraverso la contaminazione di altre discipline tecniche, danno origine a riflessioni e pensieri sull’evoluzione dell’architettura.

Location: Giardini della Biennale, Castello 1260, 30122 Venezi
