Performance Architecture

Alex Schweder and Ward Shelley use the term "Performance Architecture" to describe their many collaborations that are based around structures that they design and build before living on the structure for a period of time. While the artists live on their structures, the public is able to witness the performance and engage with the artists. The performance architecture pieces often have to do with balance, coexisting, movement, and communication that speak to larger issues plaguing the world.
