Research of Science Fiction Movies

Precast Reality / Remote Control Studio |2005 (MArch and BArch, Faculty of Architecture, University of Sydney). 15 weeks design project.

The scenarios of Science Fiction Movies describe organizations of architecture, society, identity and reality production as scheduled around 2030, given a time-span of 25 years preparation. Future realities as displayed are not a fiction, but a future yet to come, a joined negotiation scientist and professionals are already processing today.

Two studios for Sydney University, Faculty of Architecture - Precast Reality Studio (MArch) and Remote Control Studio (BArch) - examine the generative processes, phenomena and devices as used in SCIFI movies (Blade Runner, Minority Report, Matrix, 5th Element), in order to isolate, define, explore and employ environments and media use induced by these new strategies, and their architectural consequences. For introduction, 5 key sessions of selected movies were screened at RAIA, joined by lectures of key speakers that provided an integrated knowledge of an inter-disciplinary network: ‘Robotics’ by Prof. Ron Newman (Director and Dean SCA), ‘Virtual Dimensions’ by Dr. Petra Gemeinboeck (Lecturer Digital Media, Key Centre of Design Computing and Cognition, University of Sydney) and ‘In Lights’ by Dr Ian Littler (Centre for Ultra High Bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems, School of Physics, University of Sydney).
