ON POSSIBILITIES OF SOUND AS PHYSICAL CONNECTION
Architecture and design are open to a universe of meanings thanks to their inner property of constituting elements of the social culture, as well as of creating them. Nevertheless when thinking about the social aspect of architecture, one easily runs into the encounter between private and public. To what realm does sociality belong? Is it defined by communication?
The project evaluates to what extent architecture and design help create connection. It seeks to be a crossroad between elements of the public and private realm and deals with isolation, interaction and privacy, investigating the creation of spaces through connection.
Driven by the need of music within my workspace, this project uses sound as a tangible connection to create interactions. Its nature is based on dialogue: the necessity to intervene in the musicians’ workspace is necessary to design mine. The result is a series of scenarios which narrate isolation as a form of connection between me and others. By looking for interactions and testing physicality within the space, the project develops also new forms of proximities between the inside and the outside. Indeed, using tubes attached to the facade of the conservatory and entering into the building, not only allows me to hear the music happening inside, while being outside, but challenges the spatial behaviour of the building itself, creating a bridge between physical and non physical connections.
Can we use such kinds of engagements to re-look at our architectures and to set new possibilities of connections and use?
