There is not much doubt about which kind of practice is most appropriate for an architect: commercial and residential buildings, cities in the best cases (this article does not consider conventional architectural production). On the contrary, the work of an artist, in the contemporary world of biennials, is much less precise in terms of its social and political reach, with regard to promotion and marketing themes (this article does not consider conventional artistic production either). This article proposes an analysis of the common ground between art and architecture. The world of design expresses this common ground of operations. Performance design is an open project between art and science, which sets out to solve the objective and subjective problems that are characteristic of both areas. It is possible to argue that architects, artists and designers really operate in distinct areas, but it is also possible to sustain that these disciplines have a common denominator: the construction of experience. We should not have to explain that design has invaded the everyday world of human beings. Nor that art, just like architecture, is a fundamental component in the shaping of our daily experiences.
