Steep Urbanists Tour directed by Lina Bondarenko

June 9, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us on a participatory movement experience in architecture and perspective over Telegraph Hill.
This tour positions urban design as a collaboration with the earth’s geography.

The plan of San Francisco drapes a city grid over 48 hills. Streets undulate like rollercoasters, snaking around the land’s contours, rupturing to reveal concrete walls bisected by vegetated staircases. Architects design horizontal planes to contort and step into vertical terrain. Steep slopes swap roles between the theater’s rake and the elevated stage. The observer is always observed. Distorted perspectives amplify the performance of everyday life through distance.

Steep Urbanists are invited to dance through the spatial volumes of San Francisco’s sloped streets, tuned to corresponding musical volumes that trace the synchronicity between a sound wave and an architectural section.

Steep Urbanist is a project investigating how human infrastructure responds to the logic of the land directed by Lina Bondarenko– an architect, dancer, educator, and student.
