Mathew Ritchie
The Morning Line

"The morning line" is an experimental project by Matthew Ritchie, the British artist, designed with architects Aranda\Lasch and Arup advanced geometry unit, commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, which explores the interdisciplinary interplay between art, architecture, mathematics, cosmology, music, and science. Developed since 2004 as a research / investigation for a new pavilion, "The morning line" is challenging architectural convention: the team of collaborators has designed the first semasiographic building, an architectural language that directly expresses its content through its structure – a structure that is simultaneously generating itself and falling apart, enclosing an interactive environment inside which a possible future can be seen and changed.

+++ In winter 2017, we reviewed several books on Mathew Ritchie. Above Illustrations are from the TBA21 catalog. They are borrowed from "Notes on The Morning Line" chapter where Benjamin Aranda & Chris Lasch shed light on the design of the pavilion.
