This architecture thesis project begins with a passion that I have had since I was a child. It was a passion for the theater; not for the drama, but for the production of the performances instead. Every time I would walk into a theater I would be amazed by the lighting fixtures used to light the performance, when they would turn on, or dim down. The scenery on-stage had my attention the entire time of the play, especially the moment the curtains opened, or how the scenery would fly in and out of the stage. The synchronization of sound, light and stage elements, together with the actors, was what I would find worth watching in the theater. To me, there were two stories going on at the time of the performance; the one being told by the play, as well as the one of the production; of how the performance was put together.
For this project, I am taking the opportunity to explore this passion and hopefully translate it into something meaningful in architecture. It is difficult to explain in words why I am so passionate about the production of performances, but I have come to realize it is something that I find extremely interesting. My goal for this project is to understand these interests and apply them to architecture, in order to create a unique experience, or a new type of space that others can experience.
