marc FORNES / volkan ALKANOGLU: CONCEPT | The design of the Opera House is based on an integrated process that allows for a wide range of solutions and strategies to solve many challenges simultaneously. Interrelated to these design building issues are approaches on landscape integration, sustainability, environmental strategies, plant efficiency and economic viability of the building form. By recognizing and exploiting these multi-layers of interactions, the building design will advance to the status of a global landmark representing Busan and South Korea worldwide.
SILHOUETTE AND ICONIC BUILDING |
The Busan Opera House will be an icon for Busan, its coastline and an important symbol for a global South Korea as a new
cultural destination for many events. As a symbol of Busan, the Opera house will be a unique building that incorporates the
most advanced technology, sustainable systems and high efficiency materials.
Through advanced modeling tools, the design of this building with its innovative and unique aesthetic qualities also responds
to important environmental parameters such as program efficiency, solar orientation and natural ventilation.
The circular layout and 360 degree design allows continued coordination between external form, interior layout, and building
systems that give rise to an intrinsically rational and efficient design. While the form and aesthetics of the building will be
attractive to users and visitors, it also supports the idea to enhance communication within the community and bay area.
