dance : movement :: city : life. As dance is characterized by movement, the city is characterized by life. As dance is dependent on movement, the city is dependent on life.  dance : city :: movement : life Dance : city? Movement creates life; movement is the evidence for life. Can dance serve the city in the same way? dancecity :: culturestudio contends that it can. By inserting city culture into the dance studio, and conversely, surrounding city culture with the dance studio, Dancecity is a place that cultivates both dance and the culture that shapes and inpires it. It produces a symbiotic, mutually dependent relationship between the city and dance, allowing the two to draw from and to progressively shape one another. This project portrays Architecture as an agent of life, and how, through its design and use, it can activate, transform, and sustain itself and its surroundings as a place of growing vitality.
