FRAMING SPACE - CINEMATIC SPACE AS AN INSTRUMENT FOR UNDERSTANDING THE HUMAN-SPACE RELATIONSHIP STUDIO LAB – INTERIOR DESIGN SCHOOL

Interior Design School, Colman College (ISRAEL)
Background:
Our perception of space is linked to the way we move through it. By creating a studio lab class for interior design students that relates to space through the camera lens we hope to educate future designers by giving them the tools and outlook that allow them to plan spaces that have a direct relationship to the users.

This course was given to a group of 2nd and 3rd year students in collaboration with movie producer Shulamit Sonnino.

Course Syllabus:
The cinematic space is an illusion made by broken, partial and virtual elements, which by a sequence and montage of frames creates a total and continuous perception of place.

The studio's aim was to create a new relationship between man/ user and space through the introduction of an additional participant into the architectural paradigm: the camera. This addition radically transforms the famous Corbusian concept of the Architectural Promenade, a linear and continuous perception of space' into a very intense but partial cognitive understanding of Place.
The studio was divided in two parts:

1) Notation and Analysis of the Cinematic language:
Typological deconstruction of movies genre into the different elements that articulate the final frame: physical, conceptual and psychological components.

Dolly - Camera – Pan- Focus - Blur - Fade in / out - Shot angle– Auteur - Close-up -Extreme Close-up- Flashback – Freeze-Frame - Insert Slow Motion– Montage – Zoom out/ Zoom In – Story board – Mise –en - scene

2)Space- Man -Camera – The Creation of a cinematic space
Development of a specific space out of three optional scene scripts.

Methods and Phases:
Analysis and detection of the underlying currents and symbols behind the human interaction described in the script.
Transformation and representation of the interrelation of symbols into a three dimensional language.

Results:
Presentation of a storyboard in which the setting, space and design, through their shape, texture, material, color use as a type of 'Greek Choir' that completes the definition of the events (dialogue, movement, contact…).
