Taking into consideration the list of bullet points and additional research that I have done, I have remade my manifesto as a 2D-graphic. I have challenged myself to re-present the words and intent of the manifesto without using any written words.
Here is a reminder of the bullet points I put together in exercise 4.
- An Austrian Architecture and Design Firm.
- Established in 1968.
- Wolf Dieter Prix is the design Principal and CEO.
- Originally formed by Wolf Dieter Prix, Helmut Swiczinsky and Rainer Michael Holzer.
- Both Helmut & Rainer remained with the practice until 1971 and 2001 respectively.
- Known for changing conventional architecture through unexpected air angles and complicated spatial solutions.
- These results were achieved through a process of ‘drawing with one’s eyes closed’.
- Their methods were originally interpreted through 3D rendering software.
- This concept gave the practice its name, Himmelb(l)au which means ‘sky blue’.
- Simply putting the ‘l’ in brackets transformed it, meaning ‘construction in the sky’.
- They became most noticeable in 1980’s and 1990’s.
- Famous for bold angular forms and open complex spaces.
- In the 1980’s they opened a studio in Los Angeles.
- They designed the “Vodol” chair for the furniture manufacturer Vitra in 1989.
- Known for combining flat and curving forms.
- Designs to reflect the vitality and creativity of a place.
- Inspired by the French philosopher Jacques Derrida.
- They want to design Architecture that has more, describing that Architecture must blaze.
My aim is to convey and communicate the main ideas of the manifesto.
Building on creating a 2D Graphic for this exercise, I thought I would also do one for my own manifesto. Below is a reminder of the bullet points I created in a previous exercise.
- Biophilia design is a built-in human tendency to connect with nature.
- It is proven to inspire and improve our sense of well being.
- Biophilic design can accelerate healing and reduce stress.
- A biophilic design idea relies on sustainable materials that avoid unnecessary impact on the environment.
- This approach can create the best possible environment for people to live, work, play, and learn.
