The project is theater, which has potentially the narrative is connected to the drama with a story line. There’s parallel in a way in which approach architecture and the ideas of the rituals or even the narrative that connect to one another. More specifically, the exterior with organized graphics and geometry participating it. When you go into the exhibit space, you actually see “architecture” that’s been display live either as kabuki or any kinds of organized drama as a narrative that’s displayed as stage. At the end, we figure out a way to parallel that with access building. In other words, so how you circulate something and then architecture becomes registration of that circulation.
