Renowned jazz artist visits UFS
2011-02-16

 

Lira, South Africa’s top selling rhythmic jazz artist is making a special appearance at the University of the Free State (UFS). Lira is celebrated for her innovative and empowering contribution to South Africa’s music scene. She will be attending an Oneiric House Exhibition hosted by the UFS at the Centenary Complex on Thursday, 8 March 2011 at 14:00.

Lira is visiting the UFS to attend a project exhibition by third-year architecture students.The project was inspired by Lira’s music and lyrics, and aims to express a transcendence of spaces through a structural investigation that explores the adaptability of structure and space.

The project challenges students to design a single structure that can transcend its form, function and type, specifically from a private house to a public space – the two most opposite environmental modes. This transformation of space is inspired by the exploration of the realm of souls through a dream space in Lira’s lyrics.
