The White Hotel Room

The White Hotel Room exists as a Frankentype, a hybridization, wherein fundamentally opposed typologies meet. Here a cemetery and a theme park meet for the first time and their meeting is quite a peculiar one. Its existence relies not just upon juxtaposition: through the integration of individual formal and functional motifs found in each typology, giving life to an object which confronts the nature of death and adds serious perspective to the joys of life. Whilst, investigating new visual languages of architecture, projects are rarely seen in traditional plan and section and are rather expressed through renderings, mixed reality objects, as well as custom built architectural software in an attempt to reflect their Lagrangian derivations. Through the exploration of these mediums, the work enables new discussion surrounding our current theoretical and cultural framework. The studio has developed numerous provocative proposals for international competitions as well as having work exhibited across the globe including Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York and A+D Museum in Los Angeles.

About the Artists: iheartblob is an architectural design studio and research collective formed by Aleksandra Belitskaja, Ben James and Shaun McCallum, currently based in Vienna. The studio has a strong focus on the Architectural Object, yet, draws on core tenets of an array of philosophical and theoretical principles whilst exploring new models of architectural thinking and constructing. The objects are meant to both enchant and reflect on the ‘crisis of thought’ dominant in architecture today by playing with new and established ideas as though they are materials, engaging seriously with each, yet remaining at a distance from full immersion.
