This thesis is interested in speculating on new ways to exhibit architecture. As it is a culturally relevant event, the thesis will borrow strategies in other forms of popular cultural production to determine how to rejuvenate architecture exhibition. Parade and traveling circus are cultural rituals that have unique formats that give actual shape to culture. They present in a live and lively manner, and they travel among places to enlarge a wider audience.This thesis project seeks to learn from these cultural rituals such as the parade and the traveling circus to improve and expand current formats of exhibition and celebration of global architecture. This thesis want to pull strategies from the parade and traveling circus to elevate the limitation and expand the possibilities of architecture exhibition. It creates a straight divide to the relationship between subject and object. It limits the pervasiveness of architecture exhibition. With the desire to flatten the hierarchy, the thesis looks forwards to other forms of culture productions that create a subject to subject relationship.
