MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores how the loss of the Radio Canada International Shortwave Radio Transmission Station may inform a new architecture that builds upon the collective memory of a place while introducing program that will vitalize and connect the site back to the town of Sackville, New Brunswick, once more. The program of a media arts school and residency will test the varying technologies and activities associated with broadcast and creative campus design. This study also investigates how the inclusion of a media arts school may create public engagement and strengthen the connection between the people of Sackville and the surrounding landscape, reconnecting this charged site to the traditions and fabric of the town of Sackville.
