          Posted by Mario Cipresso

        • From SPFa:
          SPF:a presented its design concept in grand style to a packed house at the Grand Theatre in Calgary, along with other finalists, Allied Works Architecture/BKDI, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Jean Nouvel Workshop, and Saucier + Perrotte. The project, which involves building a National Music Centre in and around the shell of Calgary's oldest blues bar is seen by many as one of the country’s most ambitious and important urban-design projects, and is located in the heart of one of Calgary's oldest neighborhoods. The Centre will be part museum, part education and outreach facility, and part performance space, incorporating genres ranging from pop and country to ancient music and contemporary composition. For its presentation, SPF:a delighted the crowd with a stunning documentary film – taking viewers on a journey, not only through the building, but through the entire creative process and soul of the project. Cantos will announce a selection in September 2009.
