ARCHITECTURAL MAPPING / LIVE VISUALS
FACADE ANIMATION @ LAVA LABORATORY FOR VISIONARY ARCHITECTURE (LAVA)
Live animations on the facade of LAVA Stuttgart.
A facade alone means nothing. It was built long time ago – quick, cheap, simple. Meeting the purposes the building was designed for. By the time – most buildings are used and modified by different needs. The challenge is to transport the mission of the current user – the Laboratory of Visionary Architecture LAVA – as temporary urban intervention from the inside of the building to the outside. The facade is used as screen, as basis for a dynamic video installation. An installation – made for this facade, adapting to it.
The second part of the intervention are mappings on objects that have been part of LAVA´s research and model making process during the development of different projects. By animating the objects, they take over a new function. Instead of passive objects, they are the screen now and catch the attention of the audience.
