C ONC E P T The initial conceptual work that was experimented with over the course of this project saw many changes. Ideas involving building facade patterns and h o w t h i s r e l a t e s t o t h e i n t e r i o r, a s w e l l a s h o w the exterior elements such as buildings surrounding site affect the building were looked at. After modelling the structure of the building i n r e s i s t , E c c e n t r i c K- f r a m e b r a c i n g w a s decided as the main structure of the school. These frames, and the overall structure of the building ended up dictating the overall exterior and interior aesthetic of the institute of music. Overall, it communicated my idea very well, a n d w i t h t h e a d d i t i o n o f c o l o u r, t h e s t r u c t u r e of the building truly imitates the expression that people often feel through playing music.

After looking at the buildings around this a r e a o f We l l i n g t o n c i t y, I d e c i d e d t h a t I w o u l d like to try and keep the colour palette similar in the institute of music.

The roof plan of the New Zealand Institute of Music is left rather plain, apart from penetrations through it so allow light to flow into the staff offices on the top floor of the building. The reason for which the roof was left quite empty is that many of the surrounding buildings are above 20m so they would block any potential view that a roof garden would have.

As you can see, the structure of my building largely dicates the overall final form. The exterior frames angle inwards to create a form of walkway underneath the edge of the building. These frames are connected using trusses which span between the frames and gravity columns located near the centre of the building.
