The Emperor’s Castle- Thomas Hillier, Bartlett School of Architecture We’re gonna bring you another thesis project today. This one is from Thomas Hillier at the Bartlett School of Architecture. It’s quite a different project than our post yesterday, but definitely amazing. The detail in the models, and the care taken to interpret a story into an architectural solution is really amazing. Check it out after the jump.Thomas uses a great mix of illustrated pages, and models to create his narrative, and turn it into an architectural solution. Split in 3 chapters, the project moves from a 4 act original story, to architectural interpretation, to final product.

Sara Shafiei ‘Theater for Magicians’ is an extremely imaginative and rich proposal. Playing on the notions of illusions created by magicians and the actual illusions portrayed through vantage points. SCHOOL: The Bartlett UCLSTUDENT: Sara ShafieiPROFESSOR: Marcos Cruz and Marjan CollettiLOCATION: The National Botanical Gardens, Rome, Italy The project attempts to portray how magic and illusion can become an inherent part of the architectural design, which foregrounds the engagement of the user in the building. The proposal begins by exploring how Harry Houdini’s ‘Vanishing Elephant’ trick is manifested within Albrecht Dürer’s ‘cone of light and vision’ to merge showmanship, optics and illusion.The resultant building, a Theatre for Magicians, is located in the National Botanical Gardens in Rome.

Architecture for atheists imagined by Bartlett graduate Bartlett School of Architecture graduate Kacper Chmielewski has developed a new style of architecture specifically for atheists, including a shrine to the oak tree (+ slideshow). Building on the philosophies of Alain de Botton, who in 2012 advocated Atheist temples for London, Chmielewski proposes a series of structures intended to inspire awe without any references to religion. He calls the project Atheistic Architecture.
