Fusion: Describes the different layers in which the Walkman and music are created
The aim of this project is to create a space where people could enjoy listening to music while learning about the history of how sound was recorded in different forms. Music can be personalized to every individual as the creation of the Walkman was first initiated, and therefore, private and public spaces would be created throughout the interior for generating music and cassette tapes that hold the sound. In addition, repair stations and display areas workshop spaces will be available to support the journey of creating, enjoying and learning about music. For a sustainable design, the original structure of the building will not be changed, however, improvements will be made to contribute to a successful design that accommodates acoustic measures.

Interior Architecture and Design at NTU has an incredibly long and rich history; with Interior Decoration taught at the first ever UK Art school, in the Waverley building during the 1950s.
Over the last 70 years, our programme has grown and adapted to meet the requirements of industry and social change, respond to trends, and deliver a degree which encourages students to look, think, critically appraise, and understand local and world issues amongst the principles of design.
We are a validated degree programme in which our students can join the Chartered Society of Designers, and we are members of the Interior Educators network. Our dedicated design studio in the Grade II* listed Arkwright building enables a studio culture which reflects professional practice, in a dynamic environment that challenges everyone to work collaboratively, share experiences and experiment with ideas.
