I focused my masters thesis on silence in architecture, and here I have been collecting examples of what silent architecture could be.
I spent the summer traveling and developing my thesis topic under the guise of wanderlust summer.
     The sense of the baroque running through their aesthetic preferences, from the Palais Idéal to Jorn’s garden, was recognized by the situationists themselves, who empathized with the “exemplary” work of “Mad” King Ludwig II of Bavaria, whose most famous work, the fantasy castle of Neuschwanstein in the German Alps, inspired the centerpiece of Disneyland. Ludwig’s architecture, Debord felt, had “a baroque character, that one always finds so marked in essays upon an integral art.” ”In this respect,” Debord went on, “it is significant to note the relations between Ludwig of Bavaria and Wagner, who would himself research an aesthetic synthesis”— in other words, the Gesamtkunstwerk, the total work of art.
