title SEEING ARCHITECTURE WITH A FILMMAKERíS EYES
source Connecting >> Crossroads of Digital Discourse [Proceedings of the 2003 Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design In Architecture / ISBN 1-880250-12-8] Indianapolis (Indiana) 24-27 October 2003, pp. 227-233
summary Where do the methods of architectural communication cross over to other disciplines? As digital tools provide greater opportunities to communicate pre-built design in both space and time, in motion and in video, how should our methods of presentation (and therefore our method of seeing) evolve to meet this need? While filmmaking is a much younger art form than architecture, it is already much wiser with regard to motion-based presentation. If we are to evolve beyond the unsophisticated motion of the average fly-through animation, we need to develop a process of seeing and composing in time that better relates to the way we perceive temporal space. A well-edited film detaches us from the confines of the medium: we do not think about how many cameras are used in a scene if it is filmed (and edited) in a manner that is natural to the way we see and perceive. Where can the filmmakerís art inform an architecture studentís processes of presentation and design? This paper will discuss ways that filmmaking can be used to inform the process of architectural design and animation with specific examples from the work of our advanced digital media course.
