Movie: If Architecture and Meditation had a Baby..
This video was created by 6 Harvard (GSD) students, and began as a project for their course "Innovative Constructions in Modern Japan". The six students modeled the Yoyogi Main Arena as a exercise to model and analyze the architecture in great detail.
As you will see in the video, the product was much more moving than just an ordinary replication. The music and angles of the featured building are portrayed beautifully and poetically. After the class ended, two out of the six students, Emmet Truxes and Nathan Shobe, continued working on the video to produce a lyrical meditation on the atmospherics of the Yoyogi Arena. The animation is set to an original soundtrack contributed by Gray Reinhard.
