Busan Opera House in South Korea by moh architects

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: moh architects

The new ‘Busan Metropolitan Opera’ sits at the intersection point of the two bridges leading up to the competition site, tying the Opera into the city fabric while at the same time interweaving it with the picturesque waterfront promenade. The ensemble of opera and multifunctional theater further divides the site into a series of differentiated territories, each of which fully draws on the potential of a site suspended between city and sea:

Verbania Opera Hall in Italy by Andrea Maffei Architects

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Article source: Andrea Maffei Architects

The intervention area is located in a residential neighborhood in the center of Intra (Verbania), consisting of residential buildings and a plaza parking space. The project’ objective was to create a building to transform the existing context around. The form has been designed both to solve the functional needs of the theatre and to design an absolute form, which could become a new point of reference for citizens and a distinguishing element of the context around it. In the contemporary city, the buildings always led to similar mixed contexts in which we find no evidence that can address the tensions and movements of the city in a specific way. The purpose of a public building as the new theater of Verbania was this: to become a coordinating element of the city and transform the context.

The main concept in this project is to create a resort that naturally blends in this special site, by having the built up areas merge naturally with the surroundings, appearing as terraces in the landscape. These terraces, or strips, would contain the individual housing units, amidst a natural/artificial landscape of palm trees and water pools.

Busan Opera House Proposal in South Korea by solus4

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

Article source: solus4


Solus4 of Kittery Maine and Jamestown Rhode Island proposed a design solution for the Busan Opera House that flows with the elements of culture and history of Korea.

Alfonso Lopez, lead designer for Solus4 describes the origins of their design: “A very special characteristic of Korean heritage is the linked uniformity of the art, history, culture and language. Much of this is based on the beauty and the pleasure that each element of culture gives to the individual and the community”.

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?

Busan Opera House in South korea by Lacoste+Stevenson Architects

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Article source: Lacoste+Stevenson

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.
