BIO

My name is Konstantina Charalampous and I have just completed the first year of the March course in De Montfort University.

The title of my project is: The blooming clarinet.

It is a musical experience through the staircase and its growing wall as the two rooms of the scheme are used by street musicians throughout the year. The inspiration of the project comes from a music festival which is held in Ragusa, Sicily. I chose a music instrument, the clarinet, to be explored and analyzed through my project and finally help me through the design.

The scheme is composed from five layers: 

  1. The original caves of the site
  2. The staircase which links the three levels of the area
  3. The water and sound pipes
  4. The growing wall mesh 
  5. The ivy plants.

During this project I was able to develop my drawing skills and explore different approaches in architecture and architectural presentation styles.
