Architecture for the Performing Arts: 15 Venues in Mexico
The performing arts encompass all disciplines that are performed on a stage. However, the most important ones are theatre, music, and dance. Parades, religious processions and holiday celebrations all have a distinct scenic quality. This is why stage space is important for not only the presentation of these disciplines, but also for carrying out an entire bodily and spatial process that’s supported by architecture.
Architecture for the performing arts includes theatres, cinemas and amphitheatres. These spaces are also known as auditoriums. Their purpose is to create a comfortable, functional space that is both for performers and for large numbers of spectators. The design of a theatre, cinema, amphitheatre, cultural centre or auditorium must take into account many aspects such as isoptics, spatial distribution and acoustics. We have put together a list with 15 buildings that can be used to help you understand the relationship between architecture, the performing arts, and design. For the full list, please read on.
