Architecture creates spaces - for us to experience them physically, by moving through them. We are in that exact time and space, enjoying a definite time and space- that of the built form. Each viewer and each user experiences it in the similar physical way – well almost!
Spaces designed for a ‘play’– are for us to experience them by being transported mentally into the ‘played’ time and space, using our imagination or memory or both – while we remain within the present capsule of time and space, that of the audience in a theatre. These 'play-spaces’ may be - fantastic, realistic, metaphoric, representational, stylized. They may constantly emerge and dissolve within seconds. Each viewer may experience these spaces in his/her own way. Each user’s (read performer’s) equation in the play with the space however remains the same – that which emerges from the narrative played.
