"Theatrical activity in built - Architecture of conscience" Magdalini Gavriiloglou - Christina Makrigianni

Recapping our outline via the analysis of three examples (Katsura Palace - Kyoto, Monument of murdered Jews in Europe-Berlin - Peter Eisenmann and the Greek foreign office): the experience of entry requires time and space, and presupposes the suspension of continuity, of going from place to place, from one time to another.

The getting through ceremonies are made of teams according to the particularities, the needs, the dreams and their fears. The departure for such a root is not a departure without return. A sudden picture of getting through corresponds to a reasoning, a turning-point that gives the power to the thought to discover the different. The visitor is confronted with elements or people that submit him in a theatrical course.

However the theatrical activity does not offer a sure return. The variety of the relation with the "impersonating" self leaves cracks, double meanings, incoherencies to him who attempts it. 

Coming back from the visit of such a difference, one is not at his starting point. 

The experience of theatrical activity in built is an experience that recognizes a crack in the flow of the habit. The revolting relation with the everyday is a way to discover the enigma, the unknown difference in the guts of the familiar, the uniqueness, the conscience.
