A Study of Dynamic + Static Space

Architecture and dance are both able to communicate through a language of rhythm and choreography. The fluidity and balance of a dancer as an artistic endeavor can be an inspiration, to develop analogous architectural forms as a kind of transcribed motions of the dance. A dancer''s movements and pauses can be interpreted as dynamic and static architectural moments. Dynamic space suggests to be active, and continuous, while static aims to be passive, tranquil and defined. A proposal for an Art Center consisting of theater and a studio space serves as a vehicle to explore formally the spatial components inspired by dance. In the proposal, the theater embodies the active expression of motion. This provides a dynamic architectural space through two concentric curved enclosures that expand and contract horizontally and vertically. In contrast, the studios form a static shell, promoting a serene environment where the architecture frames the dancer''s activity. The duality of dynamic and static architectural space in the work is a primary framework. The dynamic expresses the kinetic nature of architectural elements in space; in contrast, the static reveals the potential of a precisely measured room to achieve a balanced harmony when juxtaposed together.
