Xavier Delory: the photographic works are an exploration of mutating architecture - an interrogation into contemporary space design and the influence of modern man.
“Designers should contemplate the void that surrounds objects, the space between objects, and the relation between those objects. I believe furniture - chairs, tables, lights etc. - could be like a constellation of stars, and we could make lines to connect them three-dimensionally and thereby construct a specific story, As a designer, I believe it is a task to create the stories. To realize the concept effectively, I try to create a maximum impact with minimum use of material.”
Topography is a study of the Italian hill town of Assisi. After learning about countless examples of urban development in relation to site design and topography, we were asked to choose a building or urban condition which existed according a strict relationship to its site, and explore the condition through the construction of a physical model. A short series of drawings and diagrams of Assisi were completed as a supplement to the physical model.
