Our experience of art and everyday life depends on a space we are in. Current spacial settings for performance do not facilitate contemporary staging tendencies in performance art to blur boundaries between performer and audience. Simultaneously, current hotel architecture focuses on just ladging. This thesis explores the friction between two seemingly disparate but deeply related programs and imagines a new type of more immersive mediated environment affording new kinds of experiences when architecture and light converts every inhabitant of the building into a performer, and the whole building into a stage.
