OODA: busan opera house

portuguese firm OODA has sent images of their design proposal for the ‘busan opera house’ in busan, south korea. the iconic building reminiscent of a seashell is positioned on the edge of the sea symbolically projecting harmonious sounds to the world. the exterior undulates to engage the existing topography while creating a subdivided interior for cultural activities that integrates necessary program requirements for operas, musical venues, theater and sporting events. fluid bands wrapping the structure blur the boundaries between internal and external environments while introducing natural light and cross ventilation.

the grand opera auditorium features flexible stage locations and seating arrangements with rotating platforms enabling large and small scale events to occur within the space. accommodating the needs of different concerts, visitors may have a variety of perspectives to view performances with a central stage and perimeter seating or a single view with all seating oriented in the same direction. a secondary multipurpose theater within the smaller volume is interconnected with a banquet hall, convention center, shopping, cafes and restaurants.

  • Is this a joke?

    ex.: ‘reminiscent of a seashell is positioned on the edge of the sea symbolically projecting harmonious
    sounds to the world.’
