sound and architecture


a small brochure for le corbusier (and xenakis) philips pavilion from the 1958 brussels world's fair. there are numerous sources for information on this most important early fusing of sound and architecture, not the least of which are here, here, and you can see corb's original film that was projected inside, here. there is also talk of the pavilion being rebuilt for the 50th anniversary next year, some info here, and finally some of varesse's tape cues for his score here

The wikipedia link to the score references a google images link on simply Philips pavilion that throws out a surprising array of images - a beautiful building.
