Competition Brief:
The theme for the competition is Contextual Design: Creating Space, Re-interpreting Tradition
Narrative:
A practice and a medium to convey human experiences – cinema and architecture engages with parameters of spaces – frame, movement – scene and events, time – duration and time frames, that is the expression of cinema. Cinema effectively translates spatial cues to evoke emotions to the viewer. Thereby, the process of storytelling brings out the semblance. This is a juxtaposition of space that happens within it, the movement of bodies through it and program brings it alive in an existing immediate environment. This is to bring about the perception and experience of space (physical space) with inherent knowledge, contextual acclamation, memories and mental psyche (mental space). A fusion of our mental spaces and physical spaces constitute the living spaces.
The context acts as a backdrop (setting) to enhance the mood and as metaphorical representation playing an active role. The spatial and contextual memories attached which assist to manipulate and evoke feelings of surprise and attachment. Focalization of character aids to develop unique trajectories and narrative for individuals bringing about the collective narratives and memories of a larger crowd related directly or indirectly in the surrounding.
Arrangement of events (movement about spaces) satisfies the cognitive based emotions, which governs the perception and understanding of the space. The key use of visuals (frames) of the context to unfold the story which approaches the event as a time frame by slowing it down or pacing it up. The approach to perceive the story, the sensorial typology and space typology would be blended to highlight the ecosystem and the character - the actor at the embankment of his profession.
Thereby, a 3 act structure is decoded in which act 1, sets up the world (site development – immediate context) and character (users). Act 2, raises the stakes to achieve, escalating the conflict (differences in experiences) and conflicts as second thoughts (re – interpreting interactions and experiences in the space as an impact of the context). Act 3 resolves the story, achievement/ failure, leaving an impact (glimpse of the structure/ space and its identity in the context) and enabling chance interactions – climax.
