Samba Dance School
Project Description :
The building is a response to the annual Brazilian Carnival. The building design augments the festive atmosphere from the public space into a series of interior and semi public space. The articulated volume is derived from the complex circulation paths, and site condition defined by the highways and space underneath them.
The design of the Samba dance school establishes a continuous, fluid relationship between the surrounding highways and the building’s circulation. The ambition for the project is to achieve a surface that appears homogenous and continuous, and vary the skin formation - undulations, bifurcations, folds, and inflections – to create broad range of spatial quality to accommodate different functional space.
Programmatically, the volume accommodates props, samba costumes, and truck access with a circulation loop at the ground level feeding into the main workshop space. This open workspaces allows visitors to interact directly with fabricators--offering a unique collaboration experience. Above the workshop, dance practice rooms are separated from the main workspaces with views of the landscape beyond.
