403C.7 IDEAS Urban Strategy Studio with Thom Mayne and Eui-Sung Yi



Haitian Orchestra: Cemuchca

As part of an IDEAS Urban Strategy led by Thom Mayne and Eui-Sung Yi of The Now Institute, five students focused on creating a resilient, seven hectare campus for the Circle of Christian Musicians of Cap Haitian (CEMUCHCA). The first phase of this project is a bandshell to host a large concert on Cap Haitien’s 350th anniversary which coincides with Beethoven's birthday, the death of Henry Christophe, and the 10-year anniversary of the last devastating earthquake in Haiti. The bandshell, which will be built before the end of this year, will be followed by dormitories, educational, energy generation and recreational facilities. Having visited the site early last quarter, the students have completed the design and are assisting the fabricators to produce the bandshell.

Students (Haitian Orchestra: Cemuchca): Rami Alotaibi, Dulce Arambula, Diana Cerri Verde, Naqsh Haider, Hua Wei, Yunchun Yang
