Motion in Architecture is mainly associated to the 4th dimension: Time. Time, through the body, experiences the building. In Architecture Animée (Animated Architecture), as part of Spontaneous architecture project, Axel de Stampa uses GIF format to develop a different approach. While the visitor doesn’t move, the building offers different perceptions, comes alive and reveals additional evidence. (cf. 1W1P)
