College of Architecture + The Arts Associate Professor Gray Read’s book Modern Architecture in Theater: The Experiments of Art et Action has been published by Palgrave Press.
The book rediscovers the provocative work of a 1920s theater troupe, Art et Action, that designed modern performance spaces for five distinct types of theater events. Each type proposed a specific kind of interaction between actors and their audience, which mirror and comment on the interactions of urban life. Their work in theater provides a creative model for looking at the role of architecture in the daily life of the city.
