Highlines of New York; Chelsea School of Aerial Arts by Adam Shapland via The Funambulist
The project seeks to explore an architecture that is responsive to the analytical exploration of narratives formulated through extractions of dynamic characteristics in an individual. The tightrope engages with a conventionally hidden or unseen landscape of the City, temporarily removing the user and viewer from spectacles of the ‘everyday’ and entering them into territories of fragile existence. The scheme exists as an academy for tightrope walkers and aerial artists with the intension to address the notion that architecture should be activated and defined by the events that happen within, around and on it.
