performance architecture – construction with clothes by dantiope
intervention 01



‘performance architecture‘ is conceived as an international ideas competition aimed at choosing proposals for five
temporary urban interventions in public spaces featured as controversial by the citizens. the installations intend
to draw up architectural and urban strategies that, by reviving performance art approaches, provide new directions
as to the roles of architects, artists and designers – while promoting alternative urban practices to the construction
of monuments and other traditional structures by facilities, activities and happenings.


the 2012 exhibition in guimaraes, portugal includes ‘construction with clothes’ by dantiope,  ‘bodyphonic’ by DOSE collective,
‘fountain hacks’ by like architects, ‘agricultural mountain’ by IUT and ‘unidade’ by pedrita studio + ricardo jacinto.
