THE OPTICAL PARK | Berlin | Unit 21 | 2012
“We have attempted to present interior reality and exterior reality as two elements in process of unification, of finally becoming one” – André Breton
The project was initiated by carrying out a series of analogue photographic experiments to explore the idea of superimposition of spaces, time and scale. This lead to the final proposal of an Optical Park at the Museum Island in Berlin. The park consists of six pavilions intend to act as viewing devices that merge the exterior views with the interior spatial condition. The design aims to create illusory effects that blur the boundary between the exterior and the interior as well as juxtaposes and overlays different realities.
