suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

the two ends of the site are connected by bands of walkable surface which form a landscape. the performance spaces (such as the concert-hall or clubs) distort these bands and create ramp systems which describe space. instead of a closed envelope the ramp/ balcony system acts as a transition zone for music to warp into the surrounding public areas creating a ambient composition of sound and space.
the building is enclosed by a braiding which constantly interweaves between the exterior and interior. it fades out the borders
