Performance + Assembly
The Experience of Space
- Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture’s Performance + Assembly: The Experience of Space covers a range of performance and assembly spaces designed by AS+GG from central spaces in the world’s largest expositions to small, flexible high-technology theaters to expressive and functional auditoriums
- Audience will be Architects, Theater Planners and Designers, Engineers, as well as students and readers with a general interest in the cultural arts. Performance and assembly structures are amongst some of the most complex building typologies as they often require rigorous technical requirements as well as specific programmatic components that need to be designed and assembled in very specific ways
- Through our work and research, we have expanded this traditional list to include structures that are less common for this type of use such as super tall buildings, public spaces, and developing new typologies like multi-dimensional venues.
Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture’s Performance + Assembly: The Experience of Space covers a range of performance and assembly spaces designed by AS+GG from central spaces in the world’s largest expositions to small, flexible high-technology theatres to expressive and functional auditoriums. The book of global cultural work includes building designs from Chicago to Istanbul, Astana to Dubai and features both photography of built spaces and unbuilt ideas. In this book Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture reviews projects to answer questions that relate to how buildings can be used to enhance the experiences of the users beyond set programmatic requirements by asking questions like: How can architecture and design help advance the technologies, the operations, the program, and the way buildings perform? At a more sensorial and experiential level, the book explores how architecture can speak to the soul to create a place in between the art and the audience.
