Here's a construction detail of the restaurant stair at Original Music Workshop. It is a wrap-around, triangular plan staircase with multiple landings that is slightly cantilevered over the yet to be built lobby bar.
As exterior construction nears completion, the scaffolding has come down at Original Music Workshop.
Original Music Workshop's next event will take place within the under-construction shell of the building on May 30th and will feature works and performances by Helga Davis, Laurie Anderson, Jeffrey Zeigler, Philip Glass, Tim Fain, Maya Beiser, Erika Harrsch, Bryce Dessner, and Suzanne Vega.
After more than four years of work, and with a budget upwards of 15 million dollars, Original Music Workshop is Bureau V's most significant project to date. I won't go into details as it would require quite an essay, and likely a bit of psychoanalysis, but this project, probably more than any other, has made me re-evaluate everything I thought about making architecture, from process, to ambition, to execution. Mostly for the better (I think). I can say, with much excitement, that we are now roughly at mid-construction, with an opening set for the end of 2013.
