The man with modern nerves

 

Utilizzando un modello animato basato sugli schizzi delle piramidi messicane terrazzate – eseguiti da Adolf Loos nel 1923 per un progetto visionario di un municipio in Città del Messico – il film rivela i concetti architettonici di superficie, volume e spazio del pioniere dell’architettura moderna. Allo stesso tempo, il gioco astratto di forme geometriche, luci e ombre che ricalca la cinematografia degli Anni 20, confermando l’arte visionaria e sperimentale di Bady Minck, condivisa per questo film con Stefan Stratil.

 

Using an animated model based on sketches of terraced Mexican pyramids – done by Adolf Loos in 1923 for a visionary design of a city hall in Mexico-City – this short animated movie reveals the architectural concepts of surface, volume and space of the pioneer of modern architecture. At the same time, the abstract game of geometric forms, light and shadows that reminiscent of certain films of the 20‘s, reveals the visionary and experimental art of Bady Minck, shared on this occasion with Stefan Stratil.
