Call for Submission – Sydney Rehearsal Follies

0

The city of Sydney is crossed by the great Sydney bay, which sets an extensive and sinuous coastal limit that shelters it from the Pacific Ocean. Over the bay there are multiple islands, marinas, national parks, buildings and bridges.

The Sydney bay strengthens its metropolitan character as of the work of the Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the Sydney Opera House. The Sydney Opera mainly hosts Plays, Ballet and Opera, making this the emblem of the city and one of the main architectural icons worldwide.

Sydney is the biggest and most populated city in Australia, as well as the cultural and musical capital of the country. It is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, a diversity that is reflected in the popular culture and the expression of the music.

Call for Submission - Sydney Rehearsal Follies

Proposal

The Utzon´s Project for the Sydney Opera was selected as the winner among 233 proposals submitted in the international architecture competition in 1955. Sixty years later, in relation to the original competition, ARCHmedium proposes the creation of a new integrated pavilion dedicated to music that complements the scenic purpose of the famous Opera and adds value to its emblematic set.

Located between the aged trees of the botanic gardens park and a few meters from the Opera, the competition would have to resolve the program of a new rehearsal and concert center while properly adapting to the site.

How does a building dedicated to music relate to the public spaces?

A jury composed by four recognized architects will vote the winning projects according to the contest criteria:

  • Josep Lluis Mateo (MAP)
  • Emiliano López
  • David Bravo
  • Iñaki Alday
  • Carlos Gonzalvo
