Promenade of Space and Sound
This project starts from considering the loss of cultures and heritage in Soho London at the time of profound change and urban re-development. There have been a lot of subculture communities throughout Soho’s history, including sex, music, street market, etc., which are one of the most crucial contributions to today’s London culture. In 1950s, many of them were thriving and standing out so that Soho could become a diverse neighbourhood.
Behind this scene, there was a great generosity from certain people who supported young artist, writers and performers to encourage their pursuit. Based on this story, I thought that the generosity of 1950s could be brought back to 2017 so that young musicians would have more opportunities to show their talent rather than being kicked out of a venue caused by high rent.
‘Promenade of Space and Sound’ is a music centered promenade theater as a processional architectural device located in Soho, London. Breaking music into parts, this space encourages people to listen to one musical instrument at a time in the beginning of their journey. Also, this structure spotlights an individual musician’s performance and provides them with a creative environment to produce experimental music collaborations.
