32BNY, in collaboration with Spirit of Space, re-launches a website dedicated to the potential of cinematic architectural discourse. Current technology allows the possibility of “a revolution in architectural discourse.” Architecture is an art experienced in space, as well as the haptic realm of material and detail. With a video, one can argue with more than polemical words—a sense of the tactile, a sense of the spatial sequence can be a part of the argument. — 32bny.com
The first video, launched Monday Feb 11, is Steven Holl and Sanford Kwinter remembering Lebbeus Woods. Future videos will include Vito Acconci on art/architecture (to be launched in early March), a video on the Firminy Church, a video of Ai Weiwei, and one on the culture of fame and success in architecture.
