Pop music and design have always had a bit of a symbiotic relationship. Hip-hop''s resident beat-smith Dr. Dre has a signature line of high-end headphones, emo-bassist Pete Wentz owns a film production company, and the laundry list of pop stars with their own clothing line continues to grow. Yet this year, one singer-songwriter is giving design students a chance to participate in the music world.

Wyclef Jean has announced a new international student design competition tasking architectural and engineering students with creating a recording studio for the singer''s charity, Yéle Haiti.

The organization, founded by Jean in 2005, is building a music studio in Cité Soleil, Haiti, which will provide the Haitian people with record local musicians, broadcast radio programming and provide vocational training for at-risk youth in what CanadianArshitect.com calls the poorest nation in the world.

"Music is what I live, breathe and sleep," Jean tells the Royal institute of British Architects. "Where I come from, music is not just notes. It is a way of survival. That''s how important the Yéle Music Studio is. Building this project in Cité Soleil is a matter of life and death."

The international competition will begin accepting admissions in mid-December.
