Performance/Architecture

An Interview with Bernard Tschumi

In the interview, Tschumi proposes that architecture is about activating space through the movement of bodies. He considers the relationship between architecture and performance is inseparable, since he reveals that architecture is both the space and what happens in it. The performance in space is as important as space itself. In addition, the definition of architecture is connected to space, movement and  what happens in it. Architecture consists of  concept and experience. One part of architecture is highly abstract, and another part is highly experiential. He also expresses that architecture is perceived through performance which contributes to the understanding of space.  The notion of public space can be embodied through space where performance takes place.
