Office of Urban Spectacles

Texas Tech University
Design Studio VI
Summer 2009
Instructors: Brian Rex : Grant Alford : Marti Gatch

This project was done in Montreal, Quebec for a studio study abroad trip. Its emphasis was based on creating an urban museum that relates to its contextual surroundings and past history. Over years of summers, Montreal has built an international reputation as a city of festivals. The Office of Urban Spectacles has three functions:

a) To preserve a trace of past festivals
b) To continue to develop the festival model
c) To export the knowledge of creating “spectacles urban”

These functions are in the raised up, folded, and truncated floor plates of the building
