Images have been released of Forward Slash ( / ) ARCHITEKTUR’s Performa 15 Hub, which served as the headquarters for New York-based Performa’s 2015 Biennial, an event dedicated to live performances across artistic disciplines. The Hub offered a venue for performances, screenings, panel discussions and seminars; and a lounge, shop and visitor information centre. View more images of the venue after the break.

Performa’s new Hub is designed with the intention of reversing the typical performance typology. Backstage, audience and performance all switch roles, with the various elements of each in constant adaptation. The project uses the stage, curtain, set, audience, light and performer to create dynamic new relationships in live performance.
