International Student Open Design Competition for Yele Music Studio, Haiti

Yele Haiti and RIBA Competitions announce the launch of an International Student Open Design Competition, established by John McAslan + Partners and Allied London, for a new music studio facility in Cité Soleil (Port-au-Prince), Haiti

The new music studio will be built in Cité Soleil and combine the recording of music and radio programming with vocational training, micro-enterprise opportunities and job creation for at-risk youth in that area.

The studio is a joint venture between Yéle Haiti and two for-profit companies - Sak Pasé Records, Wyclef Jean’s own record label, and Radio Boukman, a popular community radio station in Cité Soleil.

The joint venture arrangement will ensure that the Yéle Music Studio will be entirely self-financing within 18 months, while at the same time remaining committed to using music and radio to promote development and social issues.
