while going through the design process, architects must make a series of deliberate decisions, altering small intricacies that affect the overall perception of their creations. from from start to finish, factors such as orientation, scale, and materiality can be slightly manipulated along the way. as each of these operations are performed, the building begins to take shape in the mind of the designer. motion in architecture is mainly associated to the fourth dimension: time. this can be seen within the ways spaces are experienced, how façades can wear over time, and the aesthetic of the design in relation to its changing context. for ‘architecture animee,’ axel de stampa of 1week1project uses the GIF format to develop a different approach contrary to the common consensus.

as a result, the project provides a commentary that explores the endless world of possibilities that can occur during the formation of structures as they begin to come to life. the passage of each frame adds to the final compositions as they are no longer stagnant or merely suggestive of movement. instead, through methods such stacking volumes upon one another as seen in MDRDV’s ‘mirador building,’ folding triangulated surfaces for UNstudio’s ‘theatre agora,’ and rotating floorplates of MAD architects’ ‘absolute towers,’ the provocative notions they emanate are fully realized.
