Jazz, if you've experienced it, is an enigmatic force. Power, creativity, and culture bundled in each and every note. I'm no musician, I wish I was, but I trust that jazz, unlike and alike other forms of art, has a lot to teach us.


Initial Development - Rhythm and Cultural Elements


Early Graphics - Facade Elements

Jazz Space proposes a pavilion translating the jazz experience into physical space. After all, we are gifted with more than just the acoustic sense. The facade translates jazz elements into architectural, whilst paying homage to cultural elements in its form. The pavilion as a whole acts as a cultural monument and stage for street performers.

One might break down jazz into tempo, harmony, and improv - a timeless recipe that we just can't get enough of. I see these musical terms reflect into order, depth, and freeform in architecture. These elements are represented in layers of the pavilion facade, each contributing a unique element of jazz. Alongside conceptual connection, the formwork inherits genetics from jazz culture; objects sampled from African, American, and instrumental origin. Together, these elements play off one another, synthesized into one experience.
