GENARATION OF MUSIC WITH URBAN "THRESHOLD”

Threshold spaces are no longer simple anterooms to provide access but rather independent, complex spatial sequences and spatial structures.
Till Boettger, Threshold Spaces: Transitions in Architecture, 2014

City walls and ditches of Famagusta have function of threshold space after built and used as borders in history for years.However, people cannot recognize these spatial spaces because of closed port area, closed wall doors and physical obstacles to ditches.With these potentials, project area can be supported for program of music academy and can make people to use this area for reaching existing tourist route. By using existing warehouses, I aim opening most of the site as a threshold space to public with supported functions such as exhibition spaces, multipurpose hall and cafe/restaurant. These functions turn to architectural form as planes refered to landscape of hills of city walls.
