Belgian architect Wim Goes will be giving a talk at Warren & Mahoney in Christchurch on the 27th of July. His topic is the possibilities of reverse perspective in architecture.
Public discussion of architecture in New Zealand often focuses on building performance, housing and infrastructure, while less attention is given to how we perceive architecture. Our perception is often mediated through perspectival views that focus our attention on the object. Reverse perspective, which places the viewer at the focal point, has been thoroughly researched in the art and film worlds, yet remains relatively under-explored by architects.
