Construction progress and perfect lighting make for a great afternoon at Original Music Workshop .
Here's a nice detail from a site visit at Original Music Workshop yesterday. This is the service-entry ramp rail, made from solid 1/4" plates of steel. It's certainly a case of the fabrication living up to the design intention.
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.
