People, Spaces, Experiences, Politics: Music in/and Space

Music has been written for and performed in all sorts of spaces, including helicopters and parks. How does the presence of music create interiors of sound independently of, and with, architecture?

This 2nd-year design studio explored the spatial, social, cultural, and communal dimensions of music as it relates to interior space. In a series of exercises, students will thought broadly about the nature of sound and its spatiality. They researched a genre of international music and investigate the interrelated nature of music and society while developing visual correlates in 2D and 3D. They then designed a small community music center dedicated to the study and performance of a specific musical culture.
