Solus4 recently proposed a design solution for the Busan Opera House competition that symbolizes the elements of culture and history of Korea. Alfonso Lopez, lead designer describes the origins of the design: “A very special characteristic of Korean heritage is the linked uniformity of the art, history, culture and language. Much of this is based on the beauty and the pleasure that each element of nature represents to the individual and the community”. The lyrical, free-flowing structure also features a host of sustainable building strategies ranging from roof-based solar collectors to sea water differential temperature cooling, tidal current generators, and geothermal mass storage.
