Where the idea come from...
The dream sharing technology, the movie “Inception”together with Taoist philosophy from hundreds years ago and the penrose stairs in old days paintings are evoking a wish of an architecture achievement in the future to break up the traditional thinking of the space and create a distinctive opinion for evolution. This is the architecture paradox.
What I will do...
The ancient people use paintings to record and illustrate their dreams and wishes.
I would like to use a piece of architecture to inspire as well as represent the human’s dream of architecture paradox in the future. By doing this, it could record the “dream time”of human being pursuiting the freedom of space, the freedom of architecture. It is a dream of achieving the paradox space in architecture.
How I will do it...
1. President study.
Research in other field like painting and sculpture, as well as architecture, looking for the theory and methodology which has been used in representing the concept of paradox. Find how it could be illustrated in the language of architecture.
2. Material and Technology
Base on the president studies, research on the technology and material may required for representing the idea. And make a test if possible.
3. Prototype and adjustment
A test will be performed by designing a space or a abstract model for examing the idea. And it will be adjusted and feedback for farther development and modification. The final product will be a prototype for farther exploration.
THREE TEXT might help to build up ideas.
Gerda Breuer, Pictures of Paradox: The Photographs of Andreas Gursky.
Robin Evans, Mies Van der Rohe’s Paradoxical Symmetries.
Robert Kronenburg, Flexible: Architecture that Responds to Change.
THE PROBLEM SPACE
The space may not exist or detected by human beings in today’s technology.
It is a space of paradox. It is the fourth dimension of architecture space.
