read_bookcoverThe 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.
