Busan Opera House Proposal in South Korea by Weava Architects

With the development of North Port also comes the exaltation of the city of Busan.  A resonating voice glorifies the city and its inhabitants, and the strength in the capacity of this voice to evoke thought, inspiration and emotion increases with each successive stage of development.  The voice carries forward throughout the world, ushering the city of Busan into a new cultural era while recognizing the history of the people who identify with it.  From the mountains embracing the city, an echo resounds across the community and recalls the beacon mounds, which have been traditionally used as a method of communication beyond large distances and are currently celebrated for awe inspiring beauty.  In North Port, the mountain’s echo joins the voice of exaltation in the design of the Busan Opera House, forming a harmonious relationship composing the new cultural voice of the city.

Busan Opera House in South Korea by Praud

The concept starts from how multiple performance facilities can share common program.  One way is to share public space such as foyers and the other is to share theatre function itself.  We found out an interesting potential of theatre that when one performance facility share its theatre function with other facilities,  various types of performance stages could be created by transformation of stage and chamber facilities.  Unlike having a fixed performance stage and sharing common public space,  it is a way of providing a variety of experience to the audience as well as using the opera house more efficient way.

Studio Daniel Libeskind will produce five new towers sculpted to express the dramatic beauty and power of the ocean. The curvilinear geometry of the buildings plays with concepts of traditional Korean architecture, often derived from natural beauty such as the grace of an ocean wave, the unique composition of a flower petal, or the wind-filled sails of a ship. Upon completion it will be the tallest residential building in Asia.
