Once I was a painter and a curator in art museum and I find similarities between curating and architecture. I define curating by firstly building relationships between curator’s narrative and objects implicitly or explicitly, and then arrange the sequence of the objects along with narrative. And architecture is an organized spatial system, it is designed according to architect’s narrative about the holistic condition of program, user, site. As an analogy, curator’s narrative is the principle to build relationship and design the sequence, while architect’s narrative is the principle to execute specific action in organizing spaces as part of architecture production process. The idea of curating architectural space is to explore the possibilities of using curating as action to produce space. My thesis explores to bring the philosophy of curating to the methodology of architecture design, diversifying the ways of architecture production. and interpret architecture could be diversified.
