This publication presents the Jyväskylä Music and Arts Centre, a project that uses a system of abstracted flows mapped through particle animations to generate a rich interior/exterior social landscape.
Johan Bettum and Kivi Sotamaa of OCEAN North, one branch of an interdisciplinary research and design network originally founded in 1994, developed their proposal for the Jyväskylä Music and Art Centre in 1997 in response to an international competition. Alternating between physical and digital methods and sharing files between Oslo and Helsinki, Bettum and Sotamaa collaborated with digital experts to generate the “cloud” of particle animations that would shape the void at the building’s core.
As part of a multiyear project that includes three exhibitions on twenty-five seminal projects, the CCA and Greg Lynn are publishing a series of digital publications recording conversations with key architects. The epubs are heavily illustrated with photos, drawings, renderings, videos, PDFs and interactive 3D models.
