INTERPERSONAL INTERACTIONS IN THE NEW CIRCUS
Architecture and the design of interior spaces has inherent to it the power of guiding users experiences through space. In this thesis, the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, California is explored as a future home for Circus Center, a ‘new circus’ troupe. Emphasis has be placed on the ways members of groups perceive each other as a group, as well as the ways individuals within a groups perceive others in their own group. These interactions between people, using all senses: visual, auricular, tactile, and impressional, are not only the premise for the ‘new circus’, but inherent to the architecture of the place. Adding to this mélange the experiential memory of the users concerning not only the architectural place, but also more importantly the memory of the other users - the circus as a place of joy and carefreeness - the circus becomes a mecca of sensory experiences.
