Timeless – An Architectural exhibition exploring the 4D possibilities of architecture Film has influenced architecture since the dawn of the modern era. The creative process for entertainment, and creating places for living and working share common ground. Film influences the profession of architecture through its speculative spaces which are removed from the constraints of reality. These instances serve as inspiration in the creation of the architecture past and future. Timeless looks at designers (including filmmakers, architects, media artists, set designers, etc…) who deal with “blurring the threshold of spatial and temporal constructions.” The Call for Entries addresses space in time and time in space, and how to compose that relationship. The curatorial team seeks project and design approaches that address existing or experimental ways of working dealing with the timeless challenge of composing in time.
Please submit early to ensure a streamlined curatorial process. Authors of selected work will be notified shortly after submittal.
Submit Entries to: email@example.com no later than April 30th, 2011.
