Architecture, The Ultimate Instrument

Architecture, The Ultimate Instrument converts the natural performative qualities of musical instruments into architectural form. It operates both as an emitter of sound and a modulator of performance. These forms are deployed to occupy a landscape in service of a live-play residency for local musicians. The result is an immersive environment that embodies the experiential and functional aspects of an occupation for the advancement of its community.
