Interfaces/Intrafaces
Colletti, Marjan; Cruz, Marcos: marcosandmarjan Interfaces/Intrafaces monograph (editor: iCP) in the series Con2equence Book Series on Fresh Architecture, SpringerWienNewYork (ISBN 3-211-25232-0). Texts by Peter Cook, Marjan Colletti, Marcos Cruz, Wolfgang Fiel (128 pages). An exhibition/series of publications presenting the speculative/collaborative practice of marcosandmarjan, developed out of Marjan Colletti’s Mimetic Intrafaces (phenomenological enquiry in digital design) and Marcos Cruz’s Inhabitable Interfaces (investigation of typologies prompting new architectural embodiments). Questions: (1) How can human–computer interaction inform digital architecture? (2) How to identify new relationships between body and architecture? Aims/Objectives: (1) To initiate an ontological/phenomenological investigation of Mimetic Intrafaces. (2) To identify/create Inhabitable Interfaces in order to re-engage the body in architecture. Contexts: (1) This synthetic approach goes beyond the current impasse in digital discourse – imagery or tectonics. (2) The research contradicts the current trend of replacing typological preoccupations with topological explorations, neglecting the body in practicing architecture. Methods: Driven by architectural design, theoretically contextualized within philosophies of the body/space/design. The book was put forward by SpringerWienNewYork as its lone candidate to an international competition for best architectural book of the year 2005. Many of the projects have been exhibited and published internationally. The book launch was accompanied by 2 solo exhibitions in Germany (Hamburg and Braunschweig). eprints.ucl.ac.uk/9769/1/9769.pdf
