More InformationShow full item record
Adagio: Étude for the Practice and Performance of Piano explores the interaction between people and music in a community, and how the production of music can be available to anyone. Interaction with music has a multitude of health benefits that can have lasting effects, especially for those who play an instrument. The outcome of the project will be a 56,000 square foot Chicago Center for Piano, to be utilized for the practice, performance, education, and enjoyment of piano through practice rooms, a recital hall, and other performance spaces. An emphasis is placed on the optimization of acoustical qualities in architecture to meet specific instrumental criteria.
