Busan Opera House in South korea by Lacoste+Stevenson Architects

To maximise the amount of parkland and allow large outdoor events to take place on the new island created in the port of Busan, South Korea, the Opera House is a compact design. The building is an interpretation of Korean stone art or Suseok. It is an intriguing, shiny, scaleless object. When not in use, this solid shape is entirely closed. In the morning, it opens up like the entrance of a space ship, a large gangway lowers down creating a monumental stair for boarding.
The Concert Hall is placed above the Opera Theatre and creates an impressive height in the vertical foyer space. On the harbour-side, a section of the foyer façade slides away, opening up to embrace views of the bay. On the park side, the stage opens up for outdoor concerts for 20,000 or more people.
