When doing visuals I always had — and still need — another intellectual balance activity. All the imagination needs is the slightest suggestion, something to guess at, because with houses like these we are happy to imagine the possibility. He has been kind enough to answer all of my questions and gave me an insight about the kind of work he is currently developing. He explores image strategies which are thus able to reformulate the question of the differentiation between the real and the artificial. The following text is Brian and Loukia's interpretation of their project: Can we orient production of the nature to produce architecture? The creation of architecture is always preceded by a phase of imagination, be it in the form of a sketch, a diagram, a plan or a perspective—abstract or not.
How important is for an Architecture Studio to develop such high quality images of their design proposals, in order to win commissions and new clients? The traditional earth based material thus hybrids with the steel structure in a very unusual and interesting way and the space resulting between the habitation units and the structure is beautifully occupied by mazes of staircases and elevated pathways. By means of imaginary buildings, he consciously blurs the boundaries between authenticity and manipulation. By means of their exaggerated and orchestrated way of representation, they model themselves on the object- like appearance and the formal language of contemporary architecture in a rather ironic way. Committee on Architecture and Design Funds. These parallels are merely of a formal nature. In addition, a long wooden boardwalk cuts through the extremely heavy construction.
First of all there was a personal reason doing this series. They are not a photograph; instead, they were newly designed and constructed from scratch by means of image synthesis and digital image editing. Montage: Philipp Schaerer Philipp Schaerer is a visual artist and architect, specializing in the field of digital image processing. The windows have a wonderful way of seeming to have just arrived home themselves, suggesting a secret relationship to the world outside and on close inspection making it almost possible to see inside. Through an employment of sadistic instruments within an artificial hive apparatus, a multiplicity of bee colonies constructs a domesticity of wax over a period of time. In the context of architecture, this type of image has until now exclusively been associated with the image of built architecture. Ludger Hovestadt, he was able to continuously develop his knowledge in the area of digital image techniques.
The Bildbauten series, assembled here in its original twenty-four plates and extended by eight additional new works, speaks a powerful visual language that transcends the barriers of any written text. So when and how have you decided to focus entirely on visualization? I then decided to contact Philipp in order to get a more in depth knowledge about his work and the process of designing such intricate images. In the context of architecture, this type of image has until now exclusively been associated with the image of built architecture. Over time the exposure to external biotope defines a battle between the natural conditions and the semi - artificial structure. Committee on Architecture and Design Funds. Moreover, Marksor recently made the choice not to write on it anymore in order to dedicate his time on other projects. The Bildbauten series, assembled in the book in its original twenty-four plates and extended by eight additional new works, speaks a powerful visual language that transcends the barriers of any written text.

Frontal views of fictitious architectures serve as an example. Philipp Schaerer Exhibition: 16 April — 21 Mai 2016 In his work, Philipp Schaerer focuses on the free application of digital image processing. Now, it is increasingly used to let something appear real which has yet to be built. Already during my internship in the same office in 1998, there was tendency towards more graphic based submission and presentation.
© Copyright 2016 The Museum of Modern Art. It includes both better-known object-depicting series and some of his more abstract projects. Within this field of activity, he avails himself of a broad repository of imaging techniques and visual strategies. Can we employ sadistic instruments to torture the animal to construct a domesticity of wax? Now, the rapid development of computer and information technology has fundamentally changed the relationship between image and architecture as well as their perception. The process begins in the containment device — a cavernous, mobile, artificial housing — that reveals its interior construct of layered wax honeycomb with time. In his Bildbauten series, Schaerer cunningly takes advantage of this historical condition. Now, it is increasingly used to let something appear real which has yet to be built.
And while the perpetual development of information technology and digital photography is continuously rebalancing the relationship between architecture and its visual representation, the architect's synthetic images continue to occupy a relevant position within this debate. The entire work depending on the complexity of the project, lasts easily up to 20 hours. All images try to reproduce a reality. This leads to confusion and challenges the claim to reality of images that appear to be photographs. With this technique, almost everything can be newly created.
What the images do, far more, is test our perceptive capacities. The first one is a sort of clothe assembled by wooden pieces in friction that give to the model a acupuntural masochism dimension. The image series is a pseudo documentary imaging of non-existent sculptural-like objects. © Philipp Schaerer, Bildbau No 9, 2008 What kind of projects are you working on at the moment? It leads visitors to a flooded area and to the footpaths of the adjacent natural reserve. Whether this involves the creation of abstract image compositions by means of sampling digital image components and elements from 3D model libraries or whether Schaerer rather invents and builds photorealistic images designed by means of image synthesis or digital image editing from the ground up, his works generally exploit the freedom offered by two-dimensional imaging techniques. The question is rather how images which appear to be photographs are perceived and how the relation between appearance and reality, truth and arrangement can be described. It consists of the combination of several images or image parts, which are put together on the computer to create a new image.
For this year's studio, Francois Roche was assisted by and For the second year, this studio was experimenting processes of life and death of an architecture; in this regard, Sadic Apiaries is a system composed by two robots and thousand of bees. We once accepted photographs as the true representations of reality, accepted them without much hesitation or doubt about their validity. They are modeled with their object-like appearance as an ironic critique on formal language of contemporary architecture. The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Traveling the world with his camera at hand, the architect is constantly on the hunt for new visual inspiration, for endless varieties of weather conditions, surface textures, and sceneries to eventually merge into a cohesive image. Now, it is increasingly used to let something appear real which has yet to be built. Some of the work is directly concerned with the generation and manipulation of image data, while other images investigates the tension between surface, body, and pictorial space, taking into account recent imaging methods.
