Fall 2018


This project interprets and pursues “performance” as the experience of timed sequences of precisely framed perspectives, and consequently the timed incitations of emotions of curiosity, suspense and release.

This falls within a larger scheme of the design of three theatres at three different sites, in which the architecture attempts to become gradually less and less prescriptive. What begins as a monolith of one-way corridors and tunnels at the first site eventually morphs into an unreachable and uninhabitable folly at the last. This leaves the audience little choice but to reclaim authorship, and consequently ownership of the performance.
