Technology gives us the power to move

Letters

For too long architects have been relying on the superficial nature of the image to sell a project. A single still which from a certain angle and degree of perspective can make a building seem exciting when the reality is actually dull and disappointing.

It was exciting to read of Squint's use of film which can express and explore the dynamic qualities of light, movement, and use within a space (AJ 17.6.04).

Technology has made film an accessible tool to the designer and its ability to express the fourth dimension creates a stimulating and more involving way of developing designs with a client. It also allows us to design experiences over time rather than objects in space.

In association with WOH (www. woh. moonfruit. com), we are collaborating with other artists exploring the potential of film and the aspects of narrative, tempo and technique to refresh our perspective on architecture.

I wish Squint every success for the future and look forward to seeing its next project.
