Watch Will Alsop and John Marx talk about performative architecture at World Architecture Festival 2017

British architect Will Alsop joined American architect John Marx in conversation on day two of World Architecture Festival 2017 in Berlin.

Alsop and Marx discussed performative architecture, design as street theatre and creating performance spaces as part of a public social ritual.

Alsop is the principal of London-based studio All Design, and has completed projects such as the Stirling Prize-winning Peckham Library in south east London and unveiled plans for an "unusual" skyscraper in Vauxhall, London. John Marx is the design principal of San Francisco based architecture firm Form 4 Architecture.
