two architects, changki yun (korea) and xiaoyi zhang (china) and kyungam architects
have sent in images of their just completed project floating stage named diliter:dancing
light and water) located on the han river. the project is part of the han river renaissance
master plan and will
be an eco friendly icon that harmonizes with yeoido’s bam island.

the concept of the design was an image of a bubble rising up from the water. consisting of
a seating capacity of 2200 people, the dome structure spans approx. 500㎡ in length and 24m
in width. the control rooms are situated on the second floor of the dome to
control the light
and water performances and the multipurpose room is
situated on the first floor to be utilized
for various purposes. the arch structure supports four rotating doors that can open and close
depending on what is required. this systems allows for the stage to be
used all four seasons,
in the winter time the dome is closed to be used
as in indoor space. the base of the stage is
made up of barge structure allowing the stage
to float, and the upper dome is a steel framed
structure with
lightweight material finishes.

they recently received a prize for the korea public design award 2009, for this project.



during concert performances the LED’s, laser shows and water fountain
shows all
come together to attract crowds. during the non performance
times there is an hour
long show displayed by the musical fountain.
