Critical Dissection

Forum 3 - Novartis Campus Diener and Diener Basel, Switzerland


033


034 the campus was conceived of as a reaction vessel in which human beings and ideas encounter each other as often as possible, like molecules that are intended to react with each other.

the goal then was to not think of the individual office space out but rather work from the whole inward in order to foster communication, interaction and teamwork.

being located at the south-west corner of the campus forum 3 is a gateway into Novartis, and with reference to Roman history, the building is the hub of activity and the heart of the company.

the coloured glass facade moves, gleams and shimmers responding to the light throughout different times of day and in different weather conditions, with immensely large panels that dance weightlessly.

although the campus is comprised of many big name firms in charge of the buildings of the Novartis campus there was a great deal of care taken in respecting the historical layout of the site and its building heights. It is a campus of different experiences and innovation that represents the company as a whole, and with the forum 3 building, the facade was a springboard for what became my final design.

Initial Exercise - Four Dancers

1 East Aerial View 2 South Aerial View 3 North Aerial View


070 This initial exercise challenged us to think about what it means to dance, what dance is and dance in relation to movement and the body. With my installation on site my four dancers were uniquely their own yet relied on one another. The entity became a space one circulates through and experiences ‘in the round’. With this exercise I developed my understanding of dance in relation to the patterns of movement and the body and began to think on the experience of what I wanted my performance theatre to be for both the dancer and the viewer. Throughout the project I was challenging the experience and how this is represented formally, and though my iterations varied and sketches saw a range of different options, I feel that my final project represents what I was trying to achieve and what was originally found in this model.
