In architecture, performalism is a conceptual belief that a building’s form should be based on its purpose or function. This concept is often contrasted with the more traditional view that form should follow function. As a result, this paper examines the concept of performalism and its importance to architectural discourse. Using a mixed method approach, this paper provides an in-depth analysis of architecture’s performative dimension and examines architecture’s potential to shape and create meaningful experiences. This analysis explores performalism in contemporary architectural discourse using essays and architectural projects that connects theory and practice related to architecture’s performative dimensions. This performative dimension is explored through relevant literature and examples comparing performative theory with performative practice. In addition, a critical assessment of the concepts potential to inform architectural practice is provided by assessing their theoretical implications and relevance to current discourse and practice.
