Theater of Architecture

A discussion on the occasion of the publication of Hugh Hardy’s book Theater of Architecture, which uses a variety of his projects to explore his thesis that the profession of architecture’s “true strength lies in the building of communities…by enhancing experience.” Built forms, according to Hardy, “are the language of architecture, but without a connection with public use they lose meaning.”  This panel will use the experiential aspects of theater design—façades and public spaces as well as the auditoria—as a starting point for a discussion of architecture in the broadest sense, particularly the use of public space.
