    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    andrew SMITH-RASMUSSEN: There are a few things going on here. To being with, this project is an exploration of a diffuse living space for a speculative client with specific needs (the house has to accommodate their swinger lifestyle and resist earthquakes).


    But more importantly, the project investigates the role formal excess, vegetation and optical FX can play within an overall architectural composition. Beyond a trite “blurring of inside and outside”, the hyperactive forms combined with droste effect from the reflective surfaces explode space and perception becoming hypersaturated, hyperspatial and hypernatural.

    sP: what or who influenced this project?

    aSR: Animism, shamanism, Claude Lorrain, Peter Christopherson, Bryne Rasmussen

    sP: what were you reading/listening to/watching while developing this project?

    aSR: Books: Animism – Anselm Franke, The Claude Glass – Arnaud Maillet

    Film: Enter The Void, Hellraiser

    Music: Tons of UK bass music, Chicago juke trax, mixes from the Fear of Music crew, etc but also stuff like throbbing gristle, coil, psychic tv, and angels of light. And disco.

    sP: whose work is currently on your radar?

    aSR: Gage/Clemenceau, Xefirotarch, Emergent, Sucuno, Francois Roche

      seen one, seen all… this style is the opposite of what it was originally set out to accomplish. it is now completely bland, boring, and unimaginative.

      Art V, all you do is talk shit. I think this is a pretty nice project given the students had picked up maya for essentially the first time. Where is some of your work?

    • Quentin Says:

      and resist earthquakes? WTF…..I guess that it didnt. By the way…… where has the meaning of the word composition has gone today?
      It is not about picking up maya a doing “a pretty nice project”, its about architecture, not about messing around…… where is the space created ?, where is the structure? where are the openings? where is the substance? Yeah, I know, instead of all that you have ” the project investigates the role formal excess, vegetation and optical FX can play within an overall architectural composition. Beyond a trite “blurring of inside and outside”, the hyperactive forms combined with droste effect from the reflective surfaces explode space and perception becoming hypersaturated, hyperspatial and hypernatural.” All said.

      regurgitated garbage, so sick of this “architecture”
