M a s t e r p r o j e c t s t o r y s p e c i f i c

As a starting point, there was a rather vague and broad-based idea to do something about performing and the use of the scene, which originated in my personal p e r f o r m a n c e p l a t f o r m interests. Talking to different people in 2nd Master 20102011 the world of performance helped me to calibrate my idea. They talked about the failure of the multipurpose (polyvalent) theater and multipurpose venues and this fact was an important trigger for the finetuning of my question, my issue. If we are going to ask a question: What if we do not depart from the generally applicable (as is the case for versatility) but on the contrary, starting from the very particular and specific? What if we take a specific story and we use that to design a performance platform? Can we distill from this specific performance platform design generic qualities that we again can use in other circumstances? This question can also be placed within a wider context: What is the value of another art form (literature, theater, music) as inspiration, design guidance to architectural design? On the basis of my project design I try to answer this question.
