Image from the “Objets Trouvés Projects” series, a conceptual architectural project based on the pictorial re-interpretation of randomly encountered everyday objects, representation technique: image montage, student work – selection, course: “Image and Architecture I”, taught by Philipp Schaerer, spring semester 2017, Joint Master of Architecture Fribourg (JMA-FR).

The first part of the module dealt with the formal beauty of everyday objects. The students were encouraged to gather a collection of formally interesting objects and to register and capture them using representation technology based on architecture. Having been introduced to important digital image processing technologies, visual strategies and conceptual pictorial approaches, the participants were finally asked to transfer the formal regularities of individual chosen objects to architecture. The aim was to develop, elaborate and finally map coherently a utopian architecture with a retroactively inscribed program.
