italian practice IaN+ has won first prize in the initial phase of the ‘busan opera house’ in south korea. redeveloping the relationship of the opera house within the urban fabric, the project addresses the cityscape while redefining itself as a free-standing cultural piece. the building is made of two distinct layers, first the rigid exterior grid which takes its stylistic cues from the densely built metropolis. a modular 4×4-meter steel grid wraps the construct and holds the commercial spaces, exhibitions, restaurants, workshops, playgrounds, it can be used to hang posters, projection screens for an open-air cinema, be left untouched to provide views to the city or sea and possesses the ability to be expanded upon in the future for evolving spatial needs. the orthogonal 3d matrix of the two facades is contrasted in response to the flexibility of the sea with two concave sides. the exterior steel mesh which houses the public functions surrounds the interior theater, enveloped in layers of glass, as the cultural aspect of the modern opera house.
