051-0173-16L  Spatial Concepts in Film and Architecture (Prof A.Gigon/M.Guyer)

SemesterAutumn Semester 2016
LecturersD. E. Agotai Schmid, M. Bächtiger Zwicky
Periodicityevery semester recurring course
Language of instructionGerman


AbstractThe course deals with spatial phenomena at the interface of film and architecture. The alternating influence of these two media will be analiyzed, the dispositions of perception and effect will be compared and thus will sharpen the view for a architectural way of looking at space.
ObjectiveThe examination of filmic space situations and performance discloses new perceptions of architecture which will be studied on behalf of film analyses and experimental topics. During the course space-effective creative means such as editing or framing will be introduced and discussed under perceptive aspects. Mediality within spatial perception can thus be integrated into a development of cultural history and leads towards a conception which goes  beyond the limits of architecture and stimulates new processes of design.
