Center for Contemporary Author-Musician

This project is located in Austin. The full site enjoys the abundant shade of intertwined mature oak trees and a notable slope. This 22,000 square ft building comprise a variety of performance, exhibition and study spaces for showcasing the music of significant contemporary author-musicians.

Trees and Slope are considered as major issues to the design. The form of the building becomes critical to the project. The building is like two lifted-up slabs with all the programs sandwiched in between. To better interact with this context, both the slabs and topography are folded to create touch points as well as interesting space.
