People: Architecture

Lotus 171 (2021)

The grace with which a dancer in Pina Bausch's ballet corps crosses a river by leaping from one rock to another is likened to the delicate grace of the piers of a bridge. This issue of Lotus sets out to establish a relationship between the body and architecture and to show, in addition to centers of the performing arts, the figures made by bodies in scenes of dance, to the point of proposing them as "objective correltives" of architecture. Out of this come other architectural explorations that conclude in a eulogy of buildings and educational institutions as places where happy social and human relations are still possible.
