MUSIC AND SOUND CENTER
CREATIVE MUSIC AND SOUND CENTER FOR YOUTH
The main aim of the project is to provide an UNIqUE CITY HUb COMplETElY DEDICATED TO MUSIC ACTIVITIES.
BUT HOW THIS bUIlDING CAN HELP AND IMPROVE THE MUSIC SKILLS OF THE YOUTH STUDENTS?
The main idea is to have a place where the young musicians can meet and socialize, and where they can share all the experiences to improve the quality of their young music. So, a building where the sharing is encouraged.
BUT HOW IT IS POSSIBlE? HOW WE CAN DESIGN A PLACE WHERE THE RELATIONSHIP AMONG PEOPLE IS AT THE BASE OF ARCHITECTURE?
The YOUTH MUSIC ACTIVITIES CONDENSER is the answer. It is divided into 3 diferent overlapping functional blocks: The PUBLIC BLOCK, placed at the ground loor directly connected to the city and totally permeable, the KNOLEDGE BLOCK where the musicians can study and meet to improve their skills and the ARTISTS BLOCK where they can freerly express themselves. The layered system is thought to encourage a vertical enjoyment of the activities, starting from the bottom (public) to reach to top (exhibition) crossing through the theorical study and the practice!
The building is designed as WWLL INTEGRATED WITH THE SORROUNDING CONTEXT. It is totally closed on the main street (more noising) to shield the music activities from the noise pollution. The huge blind facade is also functionalized thanks to the vertical distribution placed behind and, at the same time, is thought as a SYSTEM TO COMMUNICATE TO THE CITY all the events organized. All the main functions, instead, are totally opened toward the schools (more intimate area), to attract and involve both visitors and studends within the heterogeneous functions.
Our proposal it is not a SIMPlE BUILDING (1), but a VERTICAl SYSTEM (2) where the ground loor is the PUBLIC LEVEL (3), totally permeable, that enforces the deep connection with the surrounding urban context, thanks to the indoor public spaces and the outdoor functionalized areas. The youths can easely socialize, staying together at the MEETING LEVEL (4), thanks to the school agorà, an articolate square designed to improve the connection among the students. The musicians can study and learn in the diferent types of lecture rooms placed at the EDUCATION LEVEL (5), perform in the black box theatre at the PERFORMANCE LEVEL (6) , or improve their skills at the PRATICA LEVEL (7). So, our proposal is ment to become a new MUSIC CONDENSER (8) dedicated to the young artists of the city!
