A film installation covering a selection of 19 projects are identified as “Media”, “Boulevard”, “Culture” and “Beyond”, a retrospective, indeed, an immersive ‘3D’ video installation produced by Japanese visual artists WOW. Instead of the conventional way of presenting architectural work that has always been though models, plans, sections and other tools, to reveal the projects through a different eye, an artistic eye looking at the architectural production, the exhibition avoided the usual means of reproduction, preferring the digital visualization of architectural space that offers viewers the ability to fly through and within high resolution, far-reaching, immersive projected images. ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE show many different viewpoints from unique angles. The architecture is deconstructed to reveal elements that the casual visitor to these sites would not have realize existed. Three gigantic screens surrounding the audience allow them to experience a virtual taste of Tabanlioglu works.
