The City of Correlative Wave Motion  1994


INDUCTION CITIES The City of Correlative Wave Motion MAKOTO SEI WATANABE

This program tries to visually depict the wave patterns of influence of a particular architectural work on other structures.

The outside of the tube-shaped realm is the ordinary, mundane world; the inside is the realm of the media. The program portrays the wave movements set in motion when one influential building is inserted.

The impact of the architecture is expressed by the height of the peaks and the depth of the valleys and their force action by lines. This program is one that visualizes the thinking process, and the method of transforming "impact" into "the dynamic force of place" can be widely applied.
It may be a while, however, before this method can be used to predict the influence on architectural circles next year, for example, of the way a work is introduced in the pages of Nikkei Architecture.
