Floating Toward Architecture; A Brief Survey

Maison individuelle 1989
par Woodie Roehmer


Many of Woodie Roehmer's early work insist on fluidity of line. This becomes particularly important in work that includes compartments. In Roehmr's work, such compartments do not follow traditional grids, and, instead of making discrete divisions between cells, the contours of individual units suggest possibilities for recombination with other units. Some may read Roehmer's fluid lines, opposed to grids, in a feminst context, and perhaps they would be right. Approached from another direction, these works suggest a participatory and dynamic architecture. In a radical approach to the traditions of architecture that emphasize stasis and authority, Roehmer's proposals not only move toward individuality, but also include elements of play.
