|Abstract:||My design studio project is a school of music, STOCKHOLM CONSERVATORIUM. Evidently, the theme of this project is about the blending of NOTES, the volume of MUSIC, and the mechanism of INSTRUMENTS. A mixture of these three objectives would create a space, a volume that allows music to work optimally. Henceforth, I come upon the design for my building which consists of three major components: the CENTRAL AUDITORIUM, LEFT WING and RIGHT WING. The central auditorium is a massive but dense centralized MUSICAL CONTAINER while the left and right wings served as SURROUND WRAPPINGS that protects the musical volume. The objective of the building is not to blend in with the surrounding but to create an image of itself, a musical image. The concept and shape of the building is inspired by the structure of a guitar, in which the strings hover over the hollow tube that provides resonance within the curved wooden body. In this manner, the central auditorium is the tube while the wings are the curved bounding walls enveloping the tube. On the other hand, the cladding of the building is expressive. The central auditorium is mainly covered with wood and timber while the wings are covered with black metal sheets. Inside the wings, the interior is clad with wood walls. Hence, the aim is to create a space that allows music to work optimally. By further taking advantage of the less frequent sunlight in Stockholm, the wings operate as a “building for the blinds”, where music that swirls within the building serves as the main directional indicator. The expressions of different materials used for different parts of the building are what I deem essential for bringing out not only the functionality but also the image of the building. Ultimately, this building conveys a strong language of its own: the melodious musical language.|
