With mobile communications and networked social activity constantly challenging traditional notions of privacy, can a theatrical urban landscape act as the stage for our desire to make ourselves visible, while becoming the living-room for a densified and diversified part of the City?


Notions of display and concealment, the carving out of pockets of privacy, as well as the unawareness of one’s visibility are core themes of the architectural investigation. The landscape becomes the spatial relative of Facebook, Twitter and Grindr: an augmented urban theatre-scape.
