Event Architecture:

Requiring the juxtaposition of all that is fixed, event architecture has developed from an anarchitecture pursuit into a new tactic of spatial determinism. The architect designs the fantastical program as part building, part carnival, part park; its spectacle, uniqueness, and marketability derived from its dense verticality. Whereas a park or carnival exists horizontally, event architecture condenses activity. The architect’s fetish for density played out by event architecture’s forceful interlocking of social interaction and land-use contestation.
