MAPP Lecture | Jaafar Chalabi, "Move" | WEDNESDAY, April 4, 6:15pm

In this weeks lecture, MOVE, Architect Jaafar Chalabi will focus on the topic of movement and kinetics in architecture as exemplified in his set designs for ballet and his firms cultural buildings. These architectural stage designs, which materialized during 12 years of collaboration with the Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato, interact in congruence with the choreographed movement of dancers. Over the course of a performance, new scenes and spatial settings come into being. Flat surfaces transform into three-dimensional units that develop into more complex architectural bodies. Dr. Chalabi will discuss the link between his set designs and the larger scale and permanent building designs that his firm is engaged in. The current construction site of the SZDLC Museum in Abu Dhabi/UAE exemplifies a direct application of computational design methods used on larger scaled buildings. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 17, 2012
