This project focuses on using architectural form and its site conditions to mediate a musician’s relationship with his audience, his collaborators, and himself. The formal strategy for the structure centers around increasing in scale while decreasing in solidity, ultimately creating a gradient condition between solids and surfaces. This change in scale and form is designed to facilitate the various challenges in his creative process- from hearing the sound of his own creative voice to discouraging voyeurism from his audience.
