Tesseract House short film is the manifestation of a dialogue and collaboration between architects and filmmakers seeking to convey, at least in part, architecture as an immersive emotional experience. This short film unconventionally threads together architectural and cinematic storytelling, rather than the typical nonfiction perspectivebased approach to architecture films, which often fall short of delivering anything like the experience of inhabiting a space. The “House of Time" poem was composed as an abstraction of the design elements into poetry to serve as a framework for the narrative and visuals. Aptly named for more than its analogous geometry, the Tesseract House, a single-family residence serves as both the context and the setting of the film as a physical construct of space & time (a tesseract), where a moment can be viewed in expanding context when time can be traversed by walking up stairs or gazing through a spatial aperture. Utilizing natural lighting alone, this spatial and poetic narrative focuses on the “moments” that foster a sense of intimacy in varying levels of a gradient of private to public space and the duality and nuance of the expanding context of those moments. Through this, intuitive emotional experiences tell a story of complex and layered architectural space and human experience.
