Abstract

[automatically translated] SIB_Rimini, 06.04.2008 THE ROLE OF ARCHITECTURE IN DESIGN M.Isabella Vesco I consider it useful to expose some personal beliefs on the subject "Art Direction", beliefs that derive almost exclusively from reflections that I was able to accomplish in the course of the project activity of students. I will focus mainly on the aspect of stage design. It is in the theater scene, be it prose or poetry or dance, which I have devoted more attention. Although the course is placed in a secondary position because it is considered part of a field of the superfluous, the provisional, the non-critical, you can generally consider an 'enrichment' specific knowledge of the architect and offers students a chance to design constraints less than an architectural project. A set design project can be considered a compromise between the architecture designed and the real architecture. Until a few decades ago it was not the actual architecture to exert its influence on the scene, but the painting, indeed, to be more precise, the pictorial image of architecture. The design methodology is the same: the stage is a space that is designed according to rules of composition and with the same tools of the architectural project: plans, elevations, sections, construction and technical details, drawings of furniture and props, there are different construction materials. This relationship with architecture today is even stronger, in fact, are always growing number architects who are also responsible for set design, but, fortunately, there are many designers who have left the nineteenth-century concept of both the real doubling that of the two-dimensional set design in favor of three-dimensional elements that compose and decompose the recitative space. The staging of a text requires the invention of a mobile architecture, rather, an architecture with 'movable foundations'. Compared to the usual design experiences that a student tackles in his formative years, the design of a scenic area, is specialized knowledge but not separated from the more general architectural science. The relationship between architecture and stage design exists not only because on the stage are repeated elements belonging to the traditional architectural language, but mainly because these items are used to compose and decompose the stage space. Summarize through images some typical elements of this architectural language often used by designers: - the box - the scale - the wall - I summarize the catwalk these elements in the images accompanying the communication. Architecture and set design have both the same goal: the creation of a space; the scenic space is the illusory space of representation, a space that simulates another space. Architecture and set design have both the same goal: the creation of a space; the scenic space is the illusory space of representation, a space that simulates another space.
