FROM WORKING SPACE TO THEATRE SPACE: THE USER PERSPECTIVE

description (EN)

Collaboration with the scientific team of the research project From working space to theatre space: the user perspective.

This NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research ) funded project, won by postdoctoral researcher dr. Marline Lisette Wilders considers in what ways the conversion of abandoned industrial sites into permanent theater spaces can re-signify the various values and meanings connected to these sites. It does so by investigating how the conversion process affects the perception of industrial heritage sites and conversely, how industrial heritage sites impact the theatre experience. Empirical data on the relationship between this particular form of theatre architecture (found space at industrial sites) and theatre experience are gathered by means of audience and reception research. Additionally, the project investigates how insights into this relationship could best be implemented by the architectural field to develop successful design strategies by means of ‘research by design’. The project takes place in Turin (Italy), a post-industrial city whose urban transformation process continues.
