Sigma Portfolio and Bubble City: Ludic Sites for a Mobile Fun Palace Program

Sigma Portfolio and Bubble City: Ludic Sites for a Mobile Fun Palace Program AbstractThis paper examines two ludic “sites of information” – Alexander’s Trocchi’s Sigma Portfolio and Joan Littlewood’s Bubble City pamphlet – within which Joan Littlewood’s program for a Fun Palace evolved in collaboration with a significant network of major personalities that included Cedric Price and Gordon Pask, amongst others. On one hand, it looks into the transference of qualities from content to format, and from site to idea; and on the other hand, it assesses the role of play in defining a “metacategorical method” (in Trocchi’s words) in order to examine the broader cultural scope behind the Fun Palace. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
