Nine Quarter City
|Abstract:||My Design project is a music store/performance area. I chose this because Madrid is a very culturally diverse city and so I wanted to express some of this in the form of music. By having a music store as well as performance areas, not only is the art of music encouraged, but sharing the creations of music is also promoted. The cladding of the building is made of bronze and has a very curvy look. This is to not only imitate the shape of a musical instrument but also represents the flow and waves of music. The shape also provides for a balcony for the 1st and 2nd floor of the music store. The building is made up two areas, the store and the performance areas. The store component has three levels which are accessed through a stairwell. Similarly there are three performance areas. The first performance space is on the ground floor and is accessible from the entrance without entering the store itself. This is because this performance area is more geared towards formal musical performances and so any night time performances have easy access On the first floor up and past the store area, there is a courtyard. This is the second performance space which allows for people to try out instruments (from the store racks) and perhaps share the music with any other musicians. The third performance space is a rooftop stage. This is also on the first floor and the stage itself overlooks the storefront. This space is designed to be the most expressive out of the three as performers would not only share music for those seated on that floor, but also anyone who passes by on street level. The stage can also be seen from balconies from the 2nd floor.|
