The Human form can be translated and diagrammed in multiple components, such as movement, structure, emotion, and tendency. As the art of dance redefines the limits of the body, these characteristics can be directly applied to the development of and progression through an architectural space. By abstracting movement of the human body, an architectural form can be derived.
Observing movement of the human body through an architectural space provides potential design insight and direction. Taking the existing components of the skin and bone in the human body, a structural form and potentially limitless skin for a building can be obtained.
How does movement occur within a space and how can an architectural space be designed to 'move'?
