Innovation, experimentation and temporality– terms that resonate with projects designatedas installations. Not quite architecturebut also not art, these structures serve toprovoke questions about material, constructionand temporality. Once at the peripheryof disciplinary discussions, installations nowform a core component of current practiceand scholarship. For installations, experienceis the currency – with no assigned programming– the power of human agency changesthe unprogrammed to one that has a purposeand function. Through these individual experiencespublic space is controlled and curatedby the user.
