Choreographics of the City


Investigating the Festive Order of the Built Environment
Architects, urbanists, and spatial designers need a different lens through which to read, analyse and design for the city.

The 'Choreographics of the City' is a project which lends new value to the careful observation and a spatial-social interpretation of the ambient conditions which are already at play in the city. Temporary urban festive events—such as religious processions, marathons, and political protests—are both ‘things’ in their own right, intangible and temporary fragments of the urban landscape, as well as a means of communication that connect people to the built environments in which we both live and design for.
