Vito Acconci is well-known as a concept and performing artist who was far ahead of his time. In 2003, he realized one of his first architectural projects: for his artist-and-gallerist friend Kenny Schachter he designed the multifunctional gallery space conTEMPorary in New York. This experimental space became programmatic for their further collaboration, up to their latest project in King’s Cross, London. Over the past years, Vito Acconci has moved towards architecture. Today’s Acconci Studio covers planning for such diverse projects as the Skateboard Park in San Juan, the Inside-Out Bookstore for Documenta X, or an urban planning for Tel Aviv. Vito Acconci and Kenny Schachter met for two discussions in London and Basel in 2004 and 2005.
