The Aalto Visualisations are experiments that
explore the relationship between representation and architecture. Our subject
was Aalto House. The project was built by Finnish architects Alvar and Aino
Aalto as their home and studio in 1936.
After some analysis, we identified two key
themes for artistic exploration. First, the building is a “collage of
materials”. Second, there is a stark contrast between the suburban front and
the forested back of the house.
As a result, we created three drawings and one
video to explore the building through the theme of collage. In each visualisation,
collage is used in a different way.
