“In our age of ecological and societal crises, it’s essential to understand how we activate environments that reciprocally activate us. Such performativity of spaces and things is central to Rodrigo Tisi’s theoretical practice as an architect, curator and interdisciplinary artist, here expressed through an impressive body of work in which he generously involves colleagues and students while engaging with diverse communities. This very notion of ‘generosity’ —a form of political love— is inherent to Tisi's design equation and the valuable contribution he makes to the field of performance design as a critical and empathic voice from the global south.” —Dr. Dorita Hannah


“Plaza Italia, in Santiago, is a space that has been radically transformed by body movements, and altered, both physically and conceptually, by a choreography of life and death. This transformation of the historic plaza is the focus of Rodrigo Tisi's brilliant publication. Through this fascinating case study, at a historic moment when a new constitution is being drafted, he attempts to respond to the essential challenge of our times: how do we live together? The publication itself becomes a space of resistance, as well as a space of hope, a shared space for a vibrant local community of artists, architects and a diverse group of intellectuals that are all working together with one simple but fundamental objective: to build a better world.” —Alfredo Jaar
