From the Atlantic: Kaleidoscopic Architecture (with video)

From the Atlantic: Kaleidoscopic Architecture (with video)

We really love the Atlantic and spin off the Atlantic: Cities. From the importance of street vendors to urban design to the critique of indie alt rock, this is one publication that should keep readers of all generations and interests coming back for quality writing and insights. And when we came across this video last December, before the launch of the new DIALOG web site, we knew it would have to eventually find a place here.

At DIALOG we are constantly trying to find new ways to look at and meaningfully engage with the world. The video uses time-lapse photography in order to make the buildings recorded come to life in a surreal distortion of geometry, movement, and colour. The style gives a perspective to architecture that is entirely unique. And when put to music is visually stunning and, well, pretty darn entertaining. Even the term “kaleidoscope”, derived from the ancient Greek words kalos (beautiful, beauty), eidos (that which is seen: form, shape) and skopeō, (to look to, to examine) point toward parts of our practice.

See this kaleidoscope of architecture for yourself (see below and don’t mind the commercial) and check out the entire article and interview with the creator here.
