Be Kind Rewind


WHAT IS A FILM HOUSE? WHAT SHOULD I DESIGN?


"Cinema should make you forget you are sitting in a theatre“. Roman Polanski


The Cinémathèque is a compact cinema club situated in the port city of Rotterdam. It is an intimate and low-tech space restricted to one main staircase. In order to respond properly to the immediate surroundings, the film house is going to have up to 3 storeys. Student will design this building under the principles of simplicity, flexibility a playful game of double and triple heights. It is all about cubic meters rather that square meters. The height of the Cinémathèque’s front has to response harmoniously according to the cultural, urban and architectural streetscape. No car park and services are required. Up to 70% of the plot might be covered. The film house’s design has to consider an inner patio for cross ventilation and natural lighting and outdoor activities.

ROTTERDAM FIELDWORK: 28/01 – 02/02/2013 Teamwork Dr Cristian Suau (CS) Dr Juliet Davis (JD) Juliet Odgers (JO) Vasileios Volakos (VV) Catherine Pease (CP) Maria Kramer (MK) Peter Feldmann (PF) John Carter (JC) Dr Marcella Bellistri (MB) Andrew Faulkner (AF)

Themes: Urban History, Dutch Architecture & Building Systems This trip to Rotterdam is a splendid opportunity to make short films about the city. Students, in groups, you would need to think about sequencing, framing, story boarding and implementation. Everyone has filming ‘latent’ capacities on their mobile phones and cameras, so no special technology is required. This process will help them to view the city in a different way.

Y1 PRACTICAL ISSUES


http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/archi/sawsa_events.php

SAWSA Lecture Series 2013 TBC http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/archi/sawsa.php Open to the public. Run independently by the student association as a non-profit venture, purely for the love of architecture and design. Please come and support the series for 2013 All events free for SAWSA members (ÂŁ2 for non-members).


INTERNAL STAFF CONTACT PERSONAL AND PASTORAL CARE

You are, however, welcome to approach any of the year team about personal or pastoral matters at any time. You should approach your PERSONAL TUTOR (see separate list) in the first instance, if possible. However, you’re welcome to see any of us and when you need us.


INTERNAL STAFF CONTACT DESIGN TEACHING Your principal design teaching for the week happens at your tutorials or crits on FRIDAYS. Additional design teaching will also be held – on a voluntary basis for those who want an additional tutorial – at the following times each week, when one of the core year team will be in studio: MONDAYS:

Year meeting 10:00-12:00 led by Dr Cristian Suau (CS), JO & VV Studio support from noon to 18pm by Juliet Odgers (O), CS & VV

TUESDAYS:

AH (morning) led by Prof Adam Hardy Studio support from 14pm to 18pm led by Dr Juliet Davis (JD) , VV

WEDNESDAYS:

AT (morning) led by Paul Thomas NOTE: Sport (afternoon)

THURSDAYS:

Studio support from 10.00-17.00 led by VV & CS

FRIDAYS:

Tutorials from 10:30am to 18pm led by external tutors, JD & CS

NOTE: Staff will also visit studio when we can outside these times. However, we all also have heavy research and administrative loads. We’d be grateful if you do not disturb us about design matters outside these studio hours.


DISABILITY & DYSLEXIA SUPPORT If you wish to request specific provisions for Examinations / Class Tests, it is essential that you contact the Disability and Dyslexia Service as early as possible, as specific provisions can only be requested via the Disability and Dyslexia Service. Disclosures are treated with strictest confidence and only passed to appropriate staff members with your permission. Talk to your year chair / module leader / personal tutor / any staff member, or contact: WSA disability contact: Clarice Bleil De Souza University Student Support Centre: 50 Park Place, ext 7452 E-mails: disability@cardiff.ac.uk, dyslexa@cardiff.ac.uk The Disability and Dyslexia Service offer appointments, or an open drop in service from 1pm-4pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and provide a range of informational leaflets in their reception area.


HOW TO SURVIVE IN Y1 STUDIO Attend ALL tutorials, reviews and lectures‌ Arrive and pin up on time If you cannot pin up on time you must let us know before the tutorials or reviews Computers, plotters and printers will be guaranteed to fail, run slow, be booked up before you: - Digital data should always be backed up regularly in two places - Have a draft version of your work to pin up if all else fails - Above all, be always prepared to display your design progress
