CHOREOGRAPHIC OBJECTS
IN RELATION TO CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE  
 

Today architecture needs cunning and subtleness, ingenious strategies as ripostes to the naive and moralistic expectations that architecture can solve problems that are by nature political and in practice capitalistic. Choreography as a mode of thought, practice and strategy supplies architecture with this cunning. With it time and space open up with new, fragile dimensions. A choreographic framework in architecture is at once more precise yet loose, more responsive yet open, than what conventional design strategies provide.

Choreographed movements differ from that prescribed by the calculable paths so often invoked in the spatial syntax of latter-day architecture. To meet with the profusion of life beyond that which can be computed, to possess and manoeuvre through the erratic spatial fields of abundant information and matter, a choreographic mind and strategy are needed.
