Breathing Buildings is a creative research project investigating aspects of air, medium and dissolution in relation to three buildings by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. The buildings are Z58 in Shanghai, China, completed in 2007; Conservatoire Darius Milhaud in Aix-en-Provence, France, completed in 2014, and the Daiwa Ubiquitous Computing Research Building at the University of Tokyo, Japan, completed in 2014. In making this work, I aimed to create a reflective site for the contemplation of architectural space through the construction of a set of related original visual and sonic narratives. The narratives do not describe Kuma’s spaces and actively avoid engaging with sequential architectural narrative. Instead, the work is an attempt to build an entirely new spatial narrative based on actual experience. It is assembled instinctively from a series of fragments that impressed themselves upon me, the researcher, as I experienced the spaces of these three buildings. The piece is contemplative in nature, with an original score composed by collaborating artist Kuba Dorabialski.
