The School of Architecture and Design hosted its first 'Geaux Design' conference last weekend.
Sixty years after the original competition won by Jorn Utzon to design the Sydney Opera House, ARCHmedium proposes the creation of a new integrated pavilion dedicated to music that complements the scenic purpose of the famous Opera and adds value to its emblematic set.Located between the aged trees of the botanic gardens park and a few meters from the Opera, the competition would have to resolve the program of a new rehearsal and concert center while properly adapting to the site.
The results of the competition were recently announced and included the work of several of our graduating seniors.
- Page Comeaux, Katie Murphy and Francisco Farrera received Honorable Mention for their project, RESONANCE [second row middle on website under Honorable Mention]
- Jessica Landry was a finalist with her project ACOUSTIC FLUIDITY [second one in under Finalists]
- Many of our other student's work is shown under Other Projects.
Thank you for all who supported their effort, particularly Gerd Wuestemann at the ACA who hosted our whole class for a MET Opera in HD Broadcast showing of Romeo et Juliette at the beginning of the student's work on this competition, and faculty members who spent one-on-one time with the students reviewing their work.
