Alternative Histories: Atelier Tomas Dirrix & Boris de Beijer on Otto Schönthal
1 January 2018
A few coloured washes present the frail idea for a cemetery church. The drawing, made by Otto Schontal, hardly seems to make a suggestion for a building. A blue and green blur with coloured stains loosely defines a sphere in which scale nor structure seems important. Following our interest in the exploration and making of an architecture of unplanned and frail character, the model presents the church as a nebulous object defined by gradients of blurs, tones and transparencies.
