Vito Acconci‘s design and architecture comes from another direction: a
background first in writing and then in art.   He has always been
writing scripts – first in poetry and narrative, then in performance
scenarios and installation plotting, and now (through Acconci Studio)
in operational and algorithmic design.  The Studio’s methods come from
computer-thinking, and mathematical and biological models; they treat
architecture as occasions for activity; they make spaces fluid,
changeable, portable.  They recently completed a person-made twisting
island in Graz and a clothing store as soft as skin in Tokyo; they are
working now on a bulging restaurant in Milan and housing folded within
a terraced mountain in the south of France.
