Moving Layers — a partyful device

Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa, PT

why is that people don’t dance in the streets today?*  /  Christopher Alexander wrote about that in A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction, his famous book from 1977  /   


The revolution of Adolphe Appia, a pioneer of modern theater staging and lighting techniques, was based on providing scenic space with three-dimensional characteristics and controlled lighting. This way, he aimed to replace the two-dimension background of classical theater with a volumetric and traversable one that will connect the actor with the scene Moving Layers works with the same principle Appia used to create a revolution for the spatial experience: walking the path between two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality. Moving Layers is an artifact that represents movement in 4 layers; image, sculpture, video, and celebration, that aims to creating awareness about different mobilities in the contemporary city.
