It was DS10’s Final crit yesterday which concludes our BRIEF03:TEMPLE. Wonderful day with a wide spectrum of temples showing the concerns and fascinations of a group of twenty-one architectural students in 2013. A myriad of political and spiritual statements on today’s society helped by parametric design tools and physical modelling. Here is the list of all the themes that emerged in the third term:
Temple to Love and Lust in Brighton, U.K. – by Georgia-Rose Collard-Watson

Thank you very much to all our external critiques: William Firebrace, Jeanne Sillett, Harri Lewis and Jack Munro. Two weeks more to go until the hand-in of portfolios (28th May). Here are couple pictures:
This is the animation that I developed for my Digirep Module at the University. The story is about an old robot that is brought to life with vibrations. The initial set is of course the Burning man Festival.
Mostly everything is done in Cinema 4D and after effects.
Cymatics reveal the geometrical patterns created by vibrating a liquid or a solid with sound waves. In summary it makes sound visible. When a surface is subject to vibrations it distorts in a non uniform way with areas of greater and lesser distorsions.
What Hans Jenny as the founder of Cymatics, pointed out is the resemblance between the shapes and patterns we see around us in physical reality and the shapes and patterns he generated in his investgations.
Jenny was convinced that biological evolution is a result of vibrations, and that their nature determined the ultimate outcome. He speculated that every cell had its own frequency and that a number of cells with the same frequency created a new frequency which was in harmony with the original, which in its turn possibly formed an organ that also created a new frequency in harmony with the two preceding ones.
In the image we see a solid shape created in a vibrating environment. A kaolin paste is heated, it liquefies and is then poured onto a vibrating diaphragm. Wave fields are created during the cooling process. Standing, travelling and interfering waves appear. Once the paste solidifies periodicity is inherent in them, it represents a state of flux. It is steady but has a constant movement within the shape. Within the form everything is in a state of circulation. Periodicity generates and sustains everything.
