几天前我们报道了Yannick MartinCASE项目——将世界上最有名的建筑师的建筑作品放在一个立方体里的系列。点开Yannick Martin的主页,能发现他的所有探索都围绕方体,这个时候,他又朝gooood推荐了512项目,于是我们也抓住机会问了他几个问题

 

1.
你为什么这么喜欢立方体这个元素?
Why do you like “cube”?

我很晚才发现“方体”。事实上,在我建筑生涯的第四年才发现了这个元素。当时我有机会向建筑师Alain Calvy学习。(很遗憾没有更早一点发现这个元素)正是和他在一起工作让我对方体产生了好奇心。我的意思是,以前我也使用过这个元素,只是从未感受到它不可思议的能量。
我开始觉得它的背后隐藏了一种特殊而神秘的东西,决定运用到我的插画作品,甚至是我所有的建筑和图形研究中。
我很喜欢这种神秘的元素,如果我们发现了它,将会带来非凡的惊喜。
最后,我想,继续去玩味并质疑而不是去过早地定义它的神秘会更有意思。
我喜欢方体是因为我有一种感觉,就是每个人都和它存在着某种强烈的联系。如果存在一种普遍性的,大众都能理解的元素,那么这种元素一定足够简单,而十分复杂的元素往往让人难以理解。
探索和绘画方体不仅仅是我个人的图形研究,而是尝试去质疑一种每个人都能直接感受并接触到的形态。
方体真是一种迷人的形态,不是吗?

I discovered cube very late. I really discovered cube and square (forms) in my fourth years of architecture. I had a chance there to learn from the architect Alain Calvy. I choose the studio theaorical  pratice of the project architectural to learn from him.
Such a shame to not have discovered cubes earlier 🙂
It’s with him then that i became very curious of the cube.
I mean, i used it before, playing with it, but without feeling the incredible power of this form.
I Then started to feel like if something special was hided into it, something mystic maybe, and decided to consider it in my illustration work but more than all in my architectural and graphical research.
I like this form thinking of the mystery that is hided inside it, and that if we could discover it, it would be amazing or catastrophic.
At the end, it’s probably better to not be able to resolve his mystery but continuing to play and question it.
I like cube because i have the feeling that everybody is strongly involve with this form. Like if there is something universal, understandable by everybody, enough simple to be appropriated and sufficiently complicate to stay inaccessible and continuing to fascinate.
Questioning and drawing about the cube is then not only doing graphics for myself, it’s trying to question a form that everybody can directly feel and be implicate with.
The cube. Such an amazing form isn’t it? 🙂

你说“I love architecture. ”,你心中理想的建筑是什么样子的,也会是一个方体吗?
You once said that “I love architecture.” So what’s your ideal architecture, also a cube?

我的专业是建筑,工作也是建筑,是的,我爱建筑。
我喜欢建筑,因为它能让我们面对恐惧,能引导我们的双眼每一次都用全新的视角去看待事物。建筑有一种强大的力量。
我总是在想Kubrick和他的电影“2001太空漫游”中出现的巨石,里面充斥着一种神秘的力量。
我相信建筑能产生这种感觉。
建筑的使命就是让人们感受到一种特殊的力量。
我认为“功能次于形式”。我尝试用不同的角度去看待事物,认为与功能相比,形式是让我的建筑作品产生那种强烈感觉的最重要元素。
用不同的角度去看待事物同样也是我们建筑师的工作。
我很长时间都在思考“功能次于形式”。我们被灌输的思想就是“形式次于功能”,但是我觉得这条规则很奇怪,似乎限制了我去思考建筑的真正含义。
如果我们首先考虑形式会怎样?我相信功能还是占据首要位置。
诚然功能很重要,但能否让我们稍微喘口气考虑形式,让形式更加自由和富于表现力。
我们暂且放下功能去关注形式又能怎样呢?
我的理想建筑是不仅建筑师能理解,普通大众也能理解的建筑。非建筑者往往无法完全理解建筑师的作品。对此我很理解(正如不是每个人都能理解数学,建筑是一个需要大量时间学习、大量实践才能获得成功的专业),但是仍然感到遗憾。我相信方体、形式和空间建筑中存在一种让每个人都能理解的东西,同时能产生一种我们身处其中的真实空间感。
我还对极少主义建筑有所思考,并不是认为极少主义建筑多么特殊,只是觉得它不会让我迷失,能让我集中精力关注更为重要的元素—形式、空间、感觉。

I am a graduated architect, worked as architect, and I love architecture yes.
I love architecture that confront our fear, that make us open the eyes like if it was the first time that we saw such thing, because I believe architecture has this power.
I always think about Kubrick and the monolith that appear in his film ‘2001 Space Odyssey’.
That is something isn’t it?
I believe architecture can produce this kind of feeling.
It’s the work of the architect to be able to build making people feel something special.
Then, I like to think that ‘the function follow the form’, trying to see things with a different angle of view, but as well really considering forms as the most important than the function finally, to produce this strong feeling that I research and desire in architecture.
That’s also our job of architects to see things with a different angle of view.
I though about that a long time ago (function follow the form), because we learn that ‘the form follow the function’, but i felt something strange in this rule, like if it was binding and limiting myself to question architecture really.
What if we consider the form first then. I am sure the function will come.
We need it anyway, but let’s breath one second and think about the forms, making their more free and expressive.
What could happen if we forget one second the function to consider the form?
My ideal architecture is something spacial that can be felt by architects but not only. Most of the time architecture can’t be completely understood by the non-architect. I understand it (not everybody can understand mathematic for example, like architecture it’s a discipline that need lot of time of study and practice to succeed), but I think that it’s very sad. In cube, form, spacial architecture, I believe there is something that can make
architecture understandable by everybody but that also can produce a real feeling of the spaces in which we move and evolve.
I think then about minimal architecture, without being especially for a minimal architecture. I just believe that in the minimal architecture there is a way to not get lost doing some building, and being able to really concentrate the energy in what matter the more, form, space, feeling.

你接下来打算用立方体这个元素做什么?
What’s your next plan with “cube”?

我刚刚结束我的两个哥伦比亚项目,CASA和CARA(我以前在伦敦居住,在亚洲和南美之间旅行一年之后决定在哥伦比亚居住一段时间)。现在我计划和我的哥哥去巴西做一些摄影项目,我还喜欢制作视频,如音乐视频、纪录片、微电影:http://www.51-prod.co.uk/
所以我也不知道我的下一步“方体”计划是什么。想法有很多,我需要一些时间和空间去理清思路,再次开启“方体”之旅。
但是我会继续探索和运用方体,这一点是肯定的。

I just finished my two Colombians projects, CASA and CARA (I was leaving in London before, and then traveled 1 year between Asia and South
America, before deciding to stay in Colombia for a while). I will now take the direction of the Brazil for some visual projects with my brother, as I also like to work with video doing music video, documentary or short films:http://www.51-prod.co.uk/
So I am not sure yet what will be my next steps with cubes.
Many ideas. I need some time and distances to think clearly what to question and do with cubes again.
But for sure i will continue to question and to play with it.

用边缘连接的方式可以画出多少种不同的二维方体?
What are the possibilities to draw a 2 dimensional cube using each of it’s edges?

你可以画出512种。这项研究的目的就是探索和展现不同形态方体产生的空间。
研究二维方体就是探索方体的无限可能性,进而去发掘最终建筑实践中出现的三维组合的无限可能性。最终的作品呈现引导人们通过观察其组合和表达的逻辑去理解一种简单的形式。

512 is the number of possibilities you can draw a 2 dimensional cube using each of it’s edges. This study aims to question and illustrate the spaces that could be produced by a cube in all it’s forms. Study the cube in 2 dimensions was a way to explore the infinity of possibilities that could offer this volume, and then to perceive the infinity of 3 dimensional combinations that could appear when finally utilizing the volume in architectural applications. The final illustration invites the viewers to explore their understanding of a simple form by looking into a logic of it’s composition and expression.
