E2_MUTATIONSThis experiment explores the ability of repetition and reproduction to de-contextualize architecture. Six mutations of well-known contemporary buildings intend to establish a dialogue between the permanence of pure forms and the contingency of their materiality and context. Two questions are crucial in this dialogue. Will the projects preserve their legibility after the mutation process? To what extent are pictures an independent object which separates architecture from reality?


The samples are provided by the instructor and can be downloaded here. In addition, a PSD template for the experiment can be downloaded here.

Each student should produce five mutations of his/her sample, using fragments of existing architectural pictures to transform the materiality of their building.


The experiment has to be presented in two formats:

BLOG// A post containing a single JPEG with all six mutations (original sample + 5 mutations). Size: [1200 pixels width / 667 pixels height].

OWLSPACE// A high-quality JPEG: [2126 pixels with / 1181 pixels height] + 5 high-quality JPEGs with each individual mutation [1800 pixels with / 1500 pixels height].
