Performalism

Recent shifts in the architectural profession influenced by a computationally based architecture transform the notion of the architectural discourse from functional terms to performance. The exhibition traces these shifts through the work of 14 international firms including GL Forms, Foster and Partners and Peter Eisenman & Associates. The design of the exhibition investigates the dynamic tracing of virtual bodies in the gallery space. An agent based system simulates movements, connecting, reacting to and defining an archipelago of ideas and practices.
