Acconci Studio’s design & architecture comes from another direction, from V. A.’s backgrounds of writing (words to look at rather than through) & art (activity & performance). The Studio was formed in 1988: it’s become a mix of poetry & geometry, computer-scripting & sentence-structure, narrative & biology, chemistry & social-sciences. The Studio uses computers to give form to thinking; they use forms to find ideas. They make not nodes but circulation-routes, they deal with time more than space – they make places fluid, changeable, portable, they anticipate cities on the move. They’re working now, near Eindhoven, on a meditation park in an archeological site; in Luzerne, on a portable retractable roof; in Gwangju, on toilets up in the trees.
