意大利,博洛尼亚,九个圆滚滚的小屋抱团组成的音乐之家 / MCA建筑事务

九个圆形建筑组成了意大利博洛尼亚音乐学院校园内新的“音乐之家”。这组个性鲜明的像亭子般的建筑围绕着一个“广场”组织起来,方便组织音乐实验室和学生之间的共享,社交活动。

MCA建筑事务所负责设计这个项目,其建筑语言形式是源于根植于这座城市的传统音乐。最终导致了教学设施由不同独立的元素构成。但是,当把这些相互独立的元素看成一个整体的时候,就像一支集体管弦乐队在演奏。另外,室内装饰使用的橡木就像流线型的乐器,延续了了“音乐”这个主题。这种木材也可以使音乐厅的声音更为饱满,更为悠扬。

建筑体量高低各异,隆起的光碟式屋顶赋予音乐厅活跃的气息。中央广场区域可以用来举办乐团演出,也可以作为小型排练的舞台。音乐屋所处的区域先前是兰博基尼的制造厂,现在演变成了一处无论一天里任何时候都可以活动的场所:不仅仅局限于举办音乐活动,还可以作为社区集会的聚集地。在夜幕时分,明亮的灯光照耀着建筑表面,远远望去建筑仿佛人们常说的“灯笼”,鼓舞着人们学习音乐的热情和提高鉴赏音乐的感知能力。尤其是在最近发生的地震之后。


a cluster of nine circular buildings form the new ‘house of music’ within the campus of the music society of pieve and music school in bologna, italy. the distinctive series of pavilion-like buildings are organised around a ‘piazza’ to host music laboratories and a place of sharing, socialising among the students.

MCA (mario cucinella architects), the firm in charge of completing the project followed an architectural language derived from the musical tradition rooted in the city. this led to the facility being comprised of  various independent elements but when together, visualise and act like a collective orchestra. additionally, the choice of oak wood paneling which wraps the exterior and interior – similar to the bodies of the string instruments –  continues the theme of music, while promoting the containment and amplification of sound inside.

the varying heights of the volumes and the lifted disk roofs give the building a playful character. the central piazza area is intended for ensemble music and small rehearsals. sited on a portion of the former lamborghini manufacturing area, the house of music has become a space that can be used at any time of the day: a gathering space for the community, not only those in the music field. illuminated externally, at night, the building appears to the people as a ‘lantern’ to encourage the appreciation and learning of musical and recreational activities especially in the aftermath of the recent earthquake.
