Busan Opera House (Opera House) by Antonis Perpatidis
2011 - 2012, Silver A' Architecture, Building and Urban Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Our inspiration was the white and black dragons of yin and yang.
Creativity
The opera is designed to connect the sea and dry land. A reminder of sea waves but mountain slopes as well. It is the boundary between the two elements. The building functions as a performing arts center. It is a shell that will shelter all the facilities that constitute an opera. The services are placed beneath a huge “umbrella”, organized in order to function. Both the auditoria are designed to house high-class events and the associated auxiliary spaces are capable to host smaller art events. The single shell idea is ecologically friendly as it allows it to function as a sustainable entity.
Design Challenges
The design process, through some architectural gestures and various symbolisms, aimed to create a building that would be an indisputable landmark of Busan. The need of such a landmark derives from the unique characteristics and dynamics of the city. Busan already enjoys exceptional natural and urban environment along with privileged location. All these factors consist of a perfect canvas for an architectural landmark of art and culture that will help the city to rise as a world class culture and tourism center.
Production Technology
From an engineering point of view, the Busan Opera House Opera House by Antonis Perpatidis is a good example of a highly-developed project.
