“Threshold is a performance and installation that examines the home as both a sacred and profane place, using movement to explore liminal space and the psychological boundaries of dwelling spaces. The choreography explores the dialectics of interior and exterior, using the threshold as a central metaphor for addressing emotional edges.The project brings together a dizzying array of Atlanta’s brightest talent including award-winning architects, Mack Scogin and Merrill Elam, who are dedicating the resources of their firm to design and build the monumental paper structure. In addition to compelling new dance, Threshold will also feature original sound (Santiago Páramo), interior design (Jane Garver), video (Chelsea Raflo), lighting (Joseph Futral), costuming (Tian Justman) and sculpture (Karley Sullivan, George Long and more).”
"Since its creation at Hague Conference in January 1930, charged to deal with German reparations following the first World War, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) has always been a central banking institution unique at the international level. It is owned and controlled by central banks and it provides a number of highly-specialized services to central banks and, through them, to the international financial system more generally. As such, Basel has become the traditional international meeting place for central bank Governors and other officials." They lost the competition to build the expansion to Mario Botta's 1986 design to Toyo Ito.
