Busan Opera House in South Korea by BaO & KJYAO & Pd’AA

Entry for the Busan Opera House competition 08-2011

Joined project: BaO + KJYAO + Pd’AA

BaO (Beijing), KJYAO (Beijing) and Pd’AA (London) collaborated on an exciting entry for the Busan Opera House competition in South Korea. The site of the competition is located on a reclaimed island in the middle of existing docks that, in the near future, will become a new cultural zone for Busan Metropolitan City. We propose an OPERA ON THE MOVE as a creative response to the evolving nature of opera in the 21st century, setting new standards of presentation and production in the performing arts. Our projects advocates both a programmatic dynamism (Opera = open cultural center for everyone) and a much more literal kind of move. We envisage that an element of Busan Opera House could detach itself from the main body of the building and sail across oceans to dock at venues around the world. If opera and theatre companies keep touring the planet to give performances, why couldn’t the building itself do so?

Centre for Earth Architecture in Mopti, Mali by Kere Architecture

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

Article source: Kere Architecture

The construction of the Centre for Earth Architecture accomplishes the activities of the AKTC in Mopti after the restoration of the mosque and the construction of a new sewerage system. The construction site has been gained by a backfill at the waterside of an interior lake and so the lakeside has been made accessible for public use. The program itself responds both to the needs of the district management Komoguel as to the visitors of the cultural facilities of the district.
