Abstract:

How is architecture, as an evolving practice, encompassing both the landscape and the buildings within it, comprehensible in the light of contemporary theorization concerning performance, spectacle, embodiment, the everyday and materiality? The answer is sought here by examining the relationship between architecture and performance in the context of the theater contrasting the pre-Renaissance theater tradition stretching from ancient Greece to Shakespeare's Globe and the post-Renaissance tradition stretching from the architecture of Inigo Jones to that of Las Vegas. The study is grounded in the geographical literature on pictorial perspective and the conception of landscape as scenic space. Rather than focusing on the pictorial arts, however, the point of departure here is in the production of theater scenery.
