Research Summary

Matthew Butcher's research seeks to explore the relationship between architecture and other disciplines – in particular art practice and performance art. Recently the research has sought to utilise the history of innovative responses to the environment, seen in the history of art and performance, as a means to consider and develop an architecture that responds to rising sea levels, climate change, and inhabitation of coastal sites. Within this framework my design research – manifesting as built structures, events, drawings, texts and scaled models – explores spaces and forms that are performative in that their material state changes, or is perceived to change, in relationship to conditions such as the environments in which they are located, or through the actions of the people who inhabit them.
