Shafts of light and the camera are moving through the dark as in a glissando. Flat, sharply cut forms appear in black-and-white and high definition. They feel their way along expanses of wall, opening up storeys, windows and doors, and break down on floors, stairs and columns.
In this way, according to a controlled choreography upheld by the music of Anton Aeki, a truly architectural experience is created on the screen. Like a constructivist audiovisual mobile, the building reveals itself and is being documented as in an architect’s dream. In other words: as a spatial and atmospheric starting point for users to start leaving their marks on it.
Building is inspired by the concerthall in Bruges and thereby also pays homage to the work of Robbrecht and Daem, the belgian architects’ collective which is well known for such exploits as the new Boijmans van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam and the Aue-pavilions for Documenta IX in Kassel.
Building is on display at Studio 4 of Concertgebouw Brugge.
