SCORING: LONDON at the intersection of music, architecture, and urban design
With John Bingham-Hall, Fani Kostourou, Gascia Ouzounian, Richard Sennett
Thursday 11 April 2019
10.00am – 16.30pm | CRiSAP studio, London College of Communication
CRiSAP is pleased to host to the London workshop for the SCORING THE CITY project, in which PhD student Matt Parker will also take part. Scoring the City takes inspiration from the graphic score, a type of notation that has flourished in experimental music traditions since the 1960s. It seeks to explore the possibilities of using the graphic score as a model for architectural and urban design.
Over 12 months we are hosting 4 workshops in very different cities, that have common challenges: London and Paris, two global cities needing to create flexible space to accommodate rapid economic and socio-cultural change; and Belfast and Beirut, cities marked by conflict needing to find common spaces across sectarian divides.
We will facilitate architects and composers to design graphic scores that function as architectural/urban models. This will lead to a joint publication featuring these designs, critical commentary, and videos, to be launched in 2020.
