MOTION + eMOTION: The Aesthetics of Movement in Architecture

PRESENTED ON FEB 28, 2017
IN BRYAN @ VOL 10

"Normally when we think about building, we think of them as static objects, but why?"

In MOTION + eMOTION: The Aesthetics of Movement in Architecture from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 10, Negar Kalantar explores the concept of transformability as a novel architectural design tool. In her work, motion itself is the design intention. Her creations take advantage of both the perceptual and functional qualities that movement can offer.

The Objective Quality of Beauty

BY ANDREW MOLLISON, AIA
@ VOL 7 ON DEC 01, 2016

“If we are going to work together to make our community a more beautiful place to live, we must have some consensus on what makes something beautiful.”

Andy Mollison is a principal at Intersect Studio, a design firm that specializes in making great places for people.  A native of Niles, he earned his degree in architecture at the University of Detroit Mercy.  He has been involved in the debate over what makes an object or place beautiful since his first studio class back in 1992.  In this PK he attempts to synthesize 2,400 years of theory on the subject into one axiom to guide the creative process towards an aesthetic worthy of human experience.
