Do Buildings Dream of Brick-Shaped-Sheep? (this video will blow your mind)

July 29th, 2009 03:28pm by flipvine

electric_sheepPhilip K. Dick wrote a book called Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (the movie Blade Runner is based on it in fact). Well, here’s an answer to the same question with regards to buildings:

“How it would be, if a house was dreaming”

The conception of this project consistently derives from its underlying architecture – the theoretic conception and visual pattern of the Hamburg Kunsthalle. The Basic idea of narration was to dissolve and break through the strict architecture of O. M. Ungers “Galerie der Gegenwart”. Resultant permeabilty of the solid facade uncovers different interpretations of conception, geometry and aesthetics expressed through graphics and movement. A situation of reflexivity evolves – describing the constitution and spacious perception of this location by means of the building itself.

Honestly, if I didn’t know what was going on and all of a sudden a building facade came to life like that in front of me, I would probably be shitting bricks (pun.. umm.. intended I guess?).  In any case, watch and enjoy, this is probably one of the few educational and non-junky posts you’re gonna see here on flipvine, but they do happen ;)
