MATTEO GIORDANO’S X2MXPosted: May 14, 2011
My only suggestion would be to watch the video first, check out the original blog post (courtesy of beautiful/decay), and then maybe think about ways to design that could potentially cause the occupant the same level of discomfort experienced by just watching the film, and then perhaps, by the participant/subject. As architects/designers, at least thus far in our education, we’ve concentrated on designing to please a certain audience or client. We’ve focused on primarily visual “experiences”, and not necessarily “experiences” that invoke pleasant/unpleasant memory that involves all senses. So what happens, then, when our designs treat the occupants differently. Is it successful or unsuccessful, and does the measure of success depend on intent, or is intent irrelevant at that point?
