Decorative Architectural Symbols in the Communication Space of a Festival
Abstract.The subject of this research is the language of architectural forms brought out in the process of a traditional festival. The author examines the most important architectural elements from the point of view of their symbolic interpretation and 'involvement' into the commnication space of a festival, and compares them to verbalized ideas and values that a festival communicates. This emphasizes the importance of the language of architecture for the modelling of a festival's communication synergy. To illustrate her research, Mostitskaya provides the examples of interpretation of the architectural festival symbols such as Acropolis, Hagia Sophia and Grand Opera in Paris. The methodological basis of the research is B. Wipper's definition of the 'language of architecture', G. Potseptsov's description of the communication space structure, and S. Khoruzhy's theory of synergy that allows to describe essential grounds of festive communication. Mostiskaya also bases her research
