Music School

The proposal engages the residual void left by de-industrialization along South Boston’s Fort Point Channel and imagines a new temporal relationship between building and water edge. The structure is an elevated performance space, cantilevered over the water, enclosed by a thinly structured translucent façade. The building blurs its relationship to the city skyline and adjacent local context. Arranged along a central atrium that interconnects the spaces vertically, designed as a series of stacked volumes, and punctuated by voids throughout, the program mediate between open and closed learning spaces. Performance rooms and classrooms are placed around a series of semi-outdoor courtyards, or ‘soft rooms,’ while the central atrium provides additional light and public circulation throughoutNEW SAVE_flatten fin MUSIC SCHOOL_CONTEXT VIEW MAP diagram1diagram2 sm
