cinema PNEUMATICA

cinema pneumatica

“cinema PNEUMATICA” is a mobile inflatable pavilion where people instead of watching a movie in a conventional manner becomes the scene of the cinematic spectacle. There are multiple projection surfaces with different textures and material properties which allow the images to materialize in many layers. Furthermore, bodies of the visitors interact with light and projections creating constantly changing patterns and scenarios. The pavilion is situated on the ‘forgotten’ land and invites to celebrate the vacant space, the moment and the unexpected temporary encounter. We seek to create a situation of enstrangement as well as to provide an adventurous space to experience individual psychogeographies. Emotions here are stimulated through sound, light and kinetic movement. The design seeks to use as less as possible typical architectural heavy materials in order to create social & emotional space. Fabrics were picked in order to achieve ergonomics, mobility and lighteness factor. Furthermore, fabric is easy and inspiring material to work with having a limited budget, offering opportunities to play with shape, light, translucency, vibration and reflection. It is a project by MArch students (URBAN RESTART) which explores unbuilt environment and low tech architecture in order to bring neglected spaces into use.

GLASGOW PROJECT OFFICE OPEN DAY

The Glasgow Project Office (GPO) – Open Day: 24 November 2014

Dear friends, colleagues and students,

 

The Glasgow Project Office (GPO) welcome all your intellectual capacities; visionary and cutting-edge environmental ideas; innovative and collaborative research game plans; and potential design services and products to dwell this new place for creative youth industry. Refer to: http://www.strath.ac.uk/architecture/businessindustry/

 

The GPO constitutes a pioneering new initiative among the architectural education centres in Scotland. It is led by the Department of Architecture and supported by the University of Strathclyde (UOS). The GPO articulates innovative and sustainable Educational, Research and Knowledge Exchange activity by engaging staff, tutors and students in live projects, design entry competitions, consultancy, internships and start-up ideas.

 

The GPO Open Day will take place on Monday the 24th of November (all day) from 11.00am until the evening. The Glasgow Project Office is located in the Barras Art and Design (BAaD) centre, which is a creative hub sheltering an eclectic mix of industrious talents under one roof. It is a unique building in Glasgow with a spectacular covered courtyard with a glazed roof, supported on steel arches that accommodate a variety of amenities. This art space is situated at the core of Glasgow’s Barras Market: 54 Calton Entry, unit 1, G40 2SB, Glasgow

 

During this day you will meet fellows, graduates and industry visitors. Students and staff will present selected works related to youth entrepreneur initiatives; social work in the South; live projects like MOBILELAND and others; and applied research. The entire day will be animated with video projections, music, café board and a key lecture.

 

On behalf of our Department we kindly invite you to attend this event and engage in the talks, films, exhibits, lecture and discussions. You are all welcome to bring your ideas and discuss them openly with Derek and myself during the morning and afternoon talks allocated in the main programme.
