P O S T have wandered around and studied transient and ephemeral phenomena in nature. This is some of the things we found and we are overwhelmed how beautiful nature can project it self in both structure and form creating space and architectonic qualities. Like the mist on a lake, the form a stone dropped in water creates, a sand dune shaped by water and wind and the structure of foam in a creek.
As we have already discussed we are truly fascinated about ephemeral architecture. The building is living in the moment and you get a sense of presence. You also appreciate it more because you know it soon will be gone.
Ephemeral buildings live on in your memory. Memories tend to be distorted and are constantly changing. The memory of the same building will look different in different peoples minds. The same memory also changes over time. This make the feeling and the experience of an ephemeral building ever changing. It´s your mind and your imagination that keep the buildings alive creating a mystique in this type of architecture.
