"I experience myself in the city, and the city exists through my embodied experience. The city and my body supplement and define each other. I dwell in the city and the city dwells in me." Juhani Pallasmaa
We pass by the cloud of Sou Fujimoto every day, sit and observe as it merges with the surrounding. Now we want to bring a part of the city identity in its most original state through the sounds of everyday experience or pieces of memories scattered from the past. This way, the Cloud gains even more authentic features of Tirana.
This is the final product of the one-week workshop “Sonique Illlusion” part of Tirana Design Week 2017 “Inclusive Architecture”. During this week we tried to capture the very core stories and sounds that reflect the real spirit of Tirana through the pattern of the live sound recordings, interviews, and memories shared by the students of Architecture from POLIS University.
This project aims to challenge the formal and physical boundaries of the physical space and architecture as we know it. We will try to figuratively dismantle the existing structure and its space out of its peculiarities and replace with different attributes that do not suit our perception and idea of this particular space/structure. The goal of this “play” is to show the important place that sounds has on out perception toward space and architecture which in a reversed process can be used in the design process. Under the theme of “Inclusive Architecture” this project broadens the architectural and spatial experience to a multidisciplinary approach intertwining the medium of sound and acoustic.
