The Analogue

Studio asked us a question about the very existence of the big theaters and auditoriums. Do we really need them with the way the industry is moving forward? The idea was to redesign institutional theater as a typology where it interacts with the living form rather than being a massive built form in itself.

Hence, a POP UP was designed just outside the existing power center in Ann Arbor which acts as a theater when required or as an urban playground that tries to integrate itself with the city. Different scenarios can be mimicked between audience and performers and sometimes, the theater itself becomes the performer and gets intermixed with the idea of staging a show.
