Architectural competition project for a 33.000m² Opera House with 1200 seats. Being situated between the new and the old town, the building is designed to be a node - in terms of function, as well as a border - in terms of mass. Unlike the conventional idea of public space on the exterior, the opera house public space is proposed to be both on the exterior and interior.
