PERFORMATIVE SPACE, London, 1996–2007

These projects interpret Karlheinz Stockhausen’s music as a performative methodology for spatial practice. This practice not only reframes the static principles of architectural representation, but also re-orientates the conventions of ‘axiality, symmetry or formal sequence’ (Allen, 1997). In order to develop this practice, I was fortunate to be accepted on the Karlheinz Stockhausen Composition and Interpretation Course, Kürten in 2007, where I explored Stockhausen’s serialism theory as a theoretical framework to generate performative space. These theories have influenced my development of a new form for architectural design. Performative space supports a closer synergistic relationship between the dynamic complexities of space and time and shifts the architectural practice towards a more reflexive dimension of space making.
