The state capital Düsseldorf is facing a decision for a location for the new development of an opera house. After an extensive examination of potential site locations, the current location of the Düsseldorf Opera House, at the Heinrich-Heine-Allee, as well as the location at „Am Wehrhahn 1“ were chosen as capable options.
Through this urban planning competition, the state capital Düsseldorf aims to garner concepts for both of the prospective building sites. The result of the competition should highlight each locations potentials and possibilities, to form a substantial basis for an informed location decision of the LHD after evaluation. Following to the political decision, a competition for realization is intended.
Both building sites exhibit different fundamentals for the accommodation of an opera house for the future.
Specific goals of the urban planning competition are:
- urban design of the opera halls cubage,
- verification of functional and area specific requirements developed by the city of Düsseldorf,
- representation of the opera hall within the urban context and junction with the surrounding urban fabric
- and especially the elaboration of the benefits for the city in purpose of „an opera for everyone”
The competition language will be German.
