Theoretical anomalies in the synchronicity of architecture and its familarities.

Monument to Freedom and Unity, Leipzig

Leipzig Monument to Freedom and Unity
In plan, likened to a bird of peace or a dove, this project deploys the articulation of geometry that has divulged the history of Germany both as a divided and unified political country. Its precedence is drawn out of their classical architectural heritage and addresses the need for its communication enabling the closure of its heritage. This work is conceived as the springing point for the establishment of the repressed in the education of architecture and all that it entails.

Architecture as Symbol as Cult of Fame

variations of labyrinth designs hand-drawn by ben nicholson


used in greek mythology, a labyrinth is a mapping tool which has only one path to the centre. all other external paths are discarded. ben nicholson’s project ‘going walkabout’ looks to the complex labyrinth as a raw architectural plan without any substance. through hand-drawn monocursal labyrinths, nicholson tries to find answers in how we are to design for the white spaces which surround us. walls and windows are often the foundations of architecture, building up a formal, fixed space, but a labyrinth tends to work well when a design is committed to a memory and set down anywhere a person sees fit. the one path in and out of a labyrinth has the potential to create its own design, a place marked by humans through a collective repetitive act. with a labyrinth you are lead into nothingness – a place which is nowhere. your feet are pulling you in one direction but, your imagination and curiosity take you somewhere else. it is a place which sparks the crossing of paths between people, intermingling, backs of hands touch against one another, you come face to face with someone else. at one moment you are enveloped by others walking around you, and then the roles reverse and you are walking around others, closing in on the space around them. cities are rich when they have accumulated the collective energy which has been left in places by individuals, and perhaps the labyrinth is the ideal way of harnessing this energy.

Circling the Square

This might be Düsseldorf in 1999 or maybe even Cologne in 1985. In any case, this is an exhibition of the work of Oswald Mathias Ungers.
