This project explores how a movies works as a perceptual construct and can be used as a conceptual basis for architecture. Blade Runner is set in a futuristic hyper-urban city. The dynamic environment is constructed through an interplay of shifting light conditions and the varied velocities of characters, objects, and the camera. I chose the Washington Avenue Bridge due to the rough physical character of the infrastructure in contrast with the multi-speed, multi-leveled traffic. My intervention intends to heighten awareness of these dynamic relationships through light as a means of tracking motion, revealing the eroding structure, and defining programmatic zones.
