[ABouT] journal

[ABouT]-Performance asks members of the architectural community to share projects or moments that highlight their experience with performance in the built environment.

The journal explores the broad interpretations of the word “performance” through the lens of place and time, while considering implications of environmental, social, economic and political conditions. The architect has the power to radically change the human perception of the environment and considers performance as it spans Across multiple architectural environments, Beyond the perceived environment and Through the physical spaces of architecture.
