Much of modern life has come to depend on the accurate measurement of time. With the development of the Caesium Atomic Clock, we can now keep time to one millionth of a second per year. However, atomic measurement lacks a fraternity of relations. The experiential, the relativistic and the poetic may all be felt in architecture that relates time to space.
This thesis project explores the role of time in a bigger context through the vessel of a cinema in the Venetian Lagoon. Both architecture and cinema manipulate time; cinema to reinforce the narrative of a film and architecture to manifest the ideas of a design.
The project is structured around parallel scales and measurements of time that exist in a space of three physical dimensions in order to create an energised ever changing process of illuminated and enlightening event appearances. A place where past, present and future activate a time, spatially defined by duration that’s perceptible through our senses and structured through our mental capability.
I use film and projection alongside traditional investigation processes to expose a temporal focus on the proccess of design.
