A course at the Royal Institute of Technology running from October 27th until December 9th
Architecture Television is about using lo-fi, simple and open source technologies to examine borders, possibilities and limitation to the mediatization of architecture. Architecture Television is televised architecture and architecture televised.
The representation of objects as we see them and their measured description, two tasks that are conventionally distinguished in architectural representation, will be shown to have been unwittingly, in many respects, mutually determined and transformed. In this course we study relations between film/television and architecture. It is not simply about creating material or TV about architecture but rather to use moving images and film-making as a tool to produce architecture. We will use lo-fi technology that we all carry with us, digital cameras, cell phones, digital cam-corders, simple editing tools and applications for distribution and circulation to look for the specificity of architecture from different perspectives. The course examines the history, theory and practice of representation and the production of architecture. We will see to what extend projective systems have affected our understanding of space through the evolution of media such as painting, photography, film and computer generated imagery.
