Theater Architecture Festival d’Avignon
Theater architecture students from the Carnegie Mellon schools of Architecture and Drama are studying and designing a new theater for the Festival d’Avignon.
We have traveled to the site and met with festival directors, the professional design team working on the real project, and are working with famed French theater designer Jean-Guy Lecat.
Multidisciplinary teams of Architecture and Drama students will conceive alternative designs for the theater in collaboration with the professional team. For our work to have its greatest impact and contribution to the real world project, we need to raise funds for publication for professional quality design documentation and translation into French. The purpose of the documentation is to inform project stakeholders and publicize the work to advance this not-for-profit project, hopefully towards its actual realization.
By contributing to our cause, you are helping to provide 16 students with a high-quality print record of their work (more than 750 pages of colored prints), which will also be an essential component of their future job search efforts. In order for this to happen, each of us needs to raise $400 to print, publish, and translate our documents into French. That is an overall goal of $6,400.
Our class is made up of 7 architects and 9 drama students who are all very passionate about this project and the work we are doing. We want to see the project expand beyond our studio desks!
