LAP-PLATFORM_02 mylar

At the end of September we met with the 605 collective to develop the scenic elements for their new production of Vital Few, set to open in Spring 2016.

The experiments utilized 4 materials:  thin film mylar sheet, translucent plastic sheet, black plastic sheet and wood frames.

The images below are from  Latreille Architectural Photography.

LAP-PLATFORM_01 the office

Our first session in this experimental collaboration.  Andrew visited the office and we had a good chat about transparency, reflections, and how to manipulate light and materials.  All in prep for a set design project that is in development.

Andrew Latraile:  A transparent material is also reflective.  Acting as a threshold this materials state can either divide, include, or be another.  This materials state is determined through the varying of light levels upon, behind or around it.

LAP-PLATFORM_the state of art + architecture

Announcing a new collaborative project between PLATFORM architecture and Latreille Architectural Photography.

To discover and investigate discrete aspects of the state of art + architecture through the creation of a series of photographs.

These photographs, rather than diagrammatic, or descriptive images of finished architectural work will range from conceptual ideas, to process oriented photographs.  The images should that describe the value of design, and stand on their own artistic merit.”

At a regular meetings Latreille Architectural Photography and PLATFORM architecture will converse on aspects of work relevant to the current state, how this can be explored as a singular or series of images/photographs, and how they might further develop each practice.

These images will be released on this blog monthly
