the morning line is an experimental project by matthew ritchie designed with architects aranda\lasch and
arup advanced geometry unit, commissioned by thyssen-bornemisza art contemporary, which explores the
interdisciplinary interplays between art, architecture, mathematics, cosmology, music, and science.
developed since 2004 as a research / investigation for a new pavilion the morning line is challenging architectural
convention: the team of collaborators has designed the first semiasographic building, an architectural language
that directly expresses its content through its structure – a structure that is simultaneously generating itself and
falling apart, enclosing an interactive environment inside which a possible future can be seen – and changed.
