Theater for Marcel Marceau
at Harvard Graduate School of Design
Marcel said, “The world is too loud.”
Architecture needs to stop talking to let Marcel speak. A theater for the performer who says nothing and everything at the same time must remain silent for the performance but say everything for the discipline - a visit to the sublime. The theater is an architecture of performance, impossible to derive, but capable of withstanding infinite performances, so loud it becomes utterly silent. For the performer who creates anything from nothing, the theater must do absolutely nothing with everything.
