Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project by The Galante Architecture Studio

In 2010, the Silk Road Project, a nonprofit arts and educational  organization dedicated to innovation, learning through  multicultural and interdisciplinary exchange, relocated to  Boston. With this transition came the opportunity to create a  custom made space including both open and private offices,  meeting areas, and an intimate performance space. In honor  of the organization’s collaborative motivations, the multi-layered wall is a physical expression of creativity that separates  the performance space from the workplace, yet links the two  through its transparency.

Formed wall space

Music passes unfiltered into the  workplace while the offices natural light penetrates the wall  to the artistic core. In this way it becomes a metaphor for the  interactions and exchanges made possible by the historical Silk  Road trade route. Beyond the aesthetics, further considerations  include enhancing practical and experiential aspects of the  work environment. A custom, climate controlled storage space  permits musical instruments to be stored on-site for the first time.
