The Performative Landscape Workshop
Art is architecture, and architecture is art. Architecture, sculpture, frescoes, and decorations, have always been artistic and economic expressions as much as elements of space and the urban fabric. Consider how the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio follows the movement of the visitor…. And how Bernini’s Piazza San Pietro is an expression of art as much as architecture.
For this project, students focused on defining a new artistic landscape in an area that has become famous thanks to Christo’s installation The Floating Piers.
