Differentiation vs. Diversity
The heritage of festivals derive from the gatherings and celebrations of early settlers that would share food (harvest festivals) and create market places to showcase their products (differentiation vs. diversity). Differentiation is an innate objective relation that is defined through the material (ie. apples & oranges). Diversity is a subjective relation, defined though mental correlation (ie. ideas & opinions). Music as a Scio-cultural narrative in architecture explores the gradient or transitional spaces between the two extremities.
Spatial differentiation can be dictated by its environment. Its relationship is clear by the impact of its environmental conditions. The dependant use can be further radicalized by the people's objectives (activation). Diverse spaces are conglomerate spaces that caters to gathering. These spaces allows occupants to interact with each other, rather than focus on a particular event. Diverse spaces encourages a response from the collective rather than from the environment. The design of being different must hold a visual impact, propagating hierarchy as a normal response. To be diverse, is to challenge thought, behavior and esteem. Therefore, spatially diverse spaces are cognitive spaces that holds only suggestive programming.
Although open spaces (diverse spaces) with provided utilities can encourage commerce, the architecture must associate its sensitivities of its current surroundings by integrating sight lines, existing trails and boardwalk grids that holds prevailing responses from its occupants that initializes the relationship between the park and its established facilities. As the project materialize as the nucleus of this festival square, the layering of grids with the new sunken building topography can carve new relationships between the pavilion, the park and the city extensions.
Project Concordia respects these scio-cultural relationships by integrating both objective (differentiation) and subjective (cognitive) spaces together through a landscaped topographical building that addresses open park pocket spaces like urban pockets. The gradient or transition that comes between these two spaces are the result of mass migration towards these spaces and the interaction the occupants have with each other and its built surroundings. As a focus, project Concordia is a built response to the growing communities lack of delicate communal spaces for a growing diverse populist to occupy.
