Processing of Space (The Port)

About the film:
How can cinematographic tools and practices be used in the architectural design process? Film gives you a broader understanding of a site. It communicates the spatial relations through movement and sound, capturing not only the ambience within the frame, but also outside the field of the camera vision. In editing footage, you process your observations and form the spine of your narrative into a sensorial experience for others. With a film narrative you can create a more complex representation of reality, than the usual two dimensional pictures, plan and section. The transformation of old port areas into residential areas, and the shutoff of industrial ports from the public due to terror regulations. The ports constitutes a refugee from the homogenized city. A space which inspires reflection; its alienating scale, its unfamiliar form language and soundscape. Shutting off ports and erasing its structures into new residential areas, shuts off the access to this reflective space, the city’s subconscious.
