The weeks of performance are over. Wednesday was the last day, and everybody had their own way of showing us what they saw in the landscape at Almaas. Alexander and Vegar had a performance with a theme of forest vs. the open landscape, which was very interesting to watch, and acted out the never-ending drama of the  the landscape changing between open and overgrown. All in all, doing performance outside was very rewarding. I have actually come to believing that performance as a sort of drama or dance can be helpful in showing the poetic qualities of a place. Our responsibility as architects must, when discovering such a quality, then be to try and make a continuation of it when we execute our interventions in the natural or cultural landscape.
