I had ended up with an odd number of sheets to go on the wall – that won’t do! Here’s the final render for the set of images. I think it rounds out the experiences from indivudual, personal spaces to group led formal spaces to this public gathering space. When I was home this summer doing research this summer I was able to see the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra perform in the shaded area just a couple hundred meters from my proposed siting of the RCOC building. The concert was almost rained out – a real problem when you think about the value and delicacy of the instruments they were all playing. A venue space, informal yet able to provide this vital space has always been in the back of my head – from the triathlon to the fringe fest or WSO concerts there is a need for this kind of semi-enclosed performance space.
This is one of those funny projects where it’s ok to pin up an orchestra performing next to an animal necropsy being performed.
