dc.description.abstract Event Architecture explores notions of program, events and space within an urban environment, challenges the established modernist idiom, 'form follows function' and by doing so, examines new and alternative ways to create architecture and events. With the growing need for architects and urban designers to look at new ways of reusing and redesigning spaces, Event Architecture focuses on an overarching programmatic concept, and looks in detail at various ways of activating spaces within existing architecture and space. These investigations have lead to an innovative outcome; a new way to activate and create urban spaces. This project seeks to break away from the idea that architecture needs to be built, and exhibits the potential for events and activity with carefully considered design. "Architecture is as much about the events that take place in spaces as the spaces themselves." Bernard Tschumi was at the forefront of this new architectural discourse and has strongly influenced my way of thinking about architecture, events and space. In my project I have endeavored to discover and document ways that spaces can be activated and inhabited through new design strategies. This has led to the development of a system that is non-site specific and able to be utilized in a multitude of sites and spaces. en
