PREMISE
The popularity of the theatre plays and opera shows, created a new typology of structures called “Opera Houses” across the Europe. They became the cultural center of a city housing legendary artists and performers.

The operas house in Italy, Vienna, Germany, England were some of the first constructed buildings that displayed grandeur. They were often placed in the commercial district of the city. Attending an opera was a social occasion that displayed the prosperity of the upper middle class.
Opera house was identified as an iconic architectural object of their respective cities.
CHALLENGE
Opera houses of Sydney, Valencia, Almaty, Beijing, etc were built subsequently in the 19th Century designed by architects Santiago Calatrava, Norman Foster and Paul Andreu respectively.
Designing an Opera House (cultural hub) of today that encapsulates the architectural style of 21st Century to create an icon that lasts for decades ahead is challenge in itself.
