Baltan Laboratories will open its homely atmosphere to you at "An Exciting Evening at Home"

Tomorrow, on Monday night and we won’t have a television hooked up at home. Truth be told, I don’t spend that much time in front of the box, but if I did, I’ve nothing to fear, for Baltan Laboratories is having an Exciting Evening at Home!

Current media technology developments plus architectural spaces = home
Three speakers, a beamer, two record players, and party food will help us feel a bit more at home – as do current developments in media technology when we’re not at home. Tomorrow night, Baltan Laboratories is opening up its hearth to you and Oliver Schürer, Tatjana Djordjevic and Marc Maurer. They will tell you what their take is on the link between media and architecture.

Oliver Schürer, Senior Scientist at the Department of Architecture Theory, Vienna University, will present some potential starting points for media architecture and media urbanism to contribute to the emergence of a new urban practice.

Architect Tatjana Djordjevic has developed a design for the world’s first ‘Instant Pleasure Hyper Building’. With daily traffic of 400.000 people, this enormous building offers space to ‘surf’ through other people’s fantasies (mostly equal to their own). The way we use media is translated into architecture, resulting in an exciting building, surprisingly based on mainly square angles.

Almost two decades ago, architect Marc Maurer designed a residential house based on sampling techniques, inspired by the Beastie Boys album ‘Paul’s Boutique’. Today, he presents his design for the ‘Baltan House’, which he developed together with his teammates at Maurer United Architects and Baltan Laboratories. A minimal house that can function as a residence (private) or a media pavilion (public).

I really hope to make it. If I can’t, why don’t you pop over and make yourself at home?

Where: Baltan Laboratories, Glaslaan 2, SWA-8, Strijp-S, Eindhoven
When: 8 November 2010, 19:30-21:30
