A very traditional view point in Architecture, however, does conservation not sometimes get in the way of great buildings?  It would form a more interesting debate.

A good attempt to tell a modest story, with a praise worthy use of camera shots, well edited.  We feel the video is fairly subjective, perhaps a more personal story understood from the direction of the designer.

The most complete entry, with a clever architectural concept and storeyboard, perhaps the soundtrack could be developed.

I-4 Competition

January 20, 2012

“I – 4 Competition”

Competition aimed to develop the use of film as a platform for architecture design, debate and development.

The relationship between Architecture and Film is fundamental. Architecture inspires Film as much as movies have the potential to inspire Architecture. Classics such as Metropolis and Blade Runner help enthuse and fuel conceptual design ideas. While the media has begun to emerge as the most effective presentation format within the ever evolving industry.

Considering the development of current portable technologies the “I – 4 Competition” aims to allow architects to submit short movies under an architectural theme of their choice and within the media of moving picture or animation.

Many thanks to all those whom submitted.

Results will be published 22nd February 2012

The most topical entry, not afraid of speaking their minds.  It reflects the viewpoint of a lot of architects in the industry at the moment, perhaps an element of bitterness, although only natural following the diffculties in the sector over the past year or two.

The submissions also reflect the humour that architects need from time to time, an energy that can become fused into great architecture.  Although the entry is more like a proposal of thoughts we must reflect to society how the industry has suffered and even better when it is tongue in cheek.

A simple entry that deals with the mathematics of architecture not only is there beauty in the aesthetics, the square reflects perfect scale and proportions as well as symmetry.  However the entry still leaves a lot of unanswered questioned.

Beautifully written entry and extremely interesting approach, there is as much beauty in destruction as in construction and the aspect of the end of the industry is a question on everybody’s lips.

However, the entry is very theoretical, the language needs to be applied to practical architecture such as the test of time, how the form of a building’s materials can change in colour, how the new becomes old through age and much like trends the old becomes the new.

Pedestrian walkways are a key aspect to the urban development of cities, we must design around humans and their behaviours.  Therefore creating a better experience for people to enjoy the public realm.  This submission, however brave, seems unecessarily expensive?? surely planting a row of trees and landscaping the route would be most effect.  Still the aesthetics of the roof panels contribute an interesting effect as well as shading to the walkway.

The scheme is very flexible and can possibly be integrated into most public spaces to generate temporary exhibition space or shelter.  However it would be more interesting to understand how the unit can become a flat pack much like you would buy in IKEA, if prefabrication is the future then the consideration of the packed unit is fundamental in terms of delivery of the unit as a whole to be assembled or perhaps the unit can self-assemble, like pop up tents.

A very simple approach, however, we find the idea stimulating and very educational.  As can be said “you give a man fish for a day and he will not go hungry for a while, however you give a man a fishing rod and show him how to fish and he will have enough food fot the rest of his life” 

This practicality allows children to develop the play area more subjectively as they would choose to use and potentially change rather than what is already provided for them.  However, perhaps the idea is beyond the limitations of small children??
