ARCHITECTURE AS TRANSLATION OF MUSIC

The Visitors Hotel

The inspiration for the studio is a video installation by the Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson called The Visitors. The piece is on 9 screens and it is 64minutes long. It is currently on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston.

Field trip in Boston, we experienced the video installation in an different way: we sense, we sketch, we analyze, we enjoy…

When we got back to studio, our thoughts and ideas were sparkling with each other through modeling, drawing and critic, trying to reconstruct and deconstruct concepts from music to architecture.
