Murder's Sounding - Digital Fabrication Studio in Warsaw, Poland - Abroad Study Program Deposit
This deposit covers a portion of the fees for the Murder’s Sounding – Digital Fabrication Studio in Warsaw, Poland Study Abroad Program.
Program fees will be approximately $5,000, and will include airfare to Warsaw from Melbourne, accommodations, and some travel within Poland.
The Murder’s Sounding intensive studio is a sequel to the ContemPLAY studio of 2010 by students at the McGill University School of Architecture. The goal of the ContemPLAY project was to engage perceptual phenomena through the creation of pavilion invented through a closed-loop process of digital design and fabrication that always erred toward uniqueness and
The intent of Murder’s Sounding is to create 3 architectural instruments, interactive and networked pavilions, that tell stories with sound. The design of the pavilions will re-imagine the promise of digital fabrication away from complexity and towards narrative.
The stories to be told will be murder mysteries that span 3 cities - Warsaw, Poland; Melbourne, Australia; and Baton Rouge Louisiana - and engage 3 rivers - the Vistula, the Yarra, and the Mississippi.
Students can expect to immerse themselves in the experience of Warsaw, Poland, a city once known as the “Paris of the East,” to explore the city through a series of mildly absurd dérives, and to investigate the potential of computational architecture to tell tall tales through a real-world digital design-build project.
