The project comes after a competition awarded in June 2008, which included Snøhetta (Norway), Atelier Christian de Portzamparc (France), Delugan Meissl (Austria), Henning Larsens Tegnestue (Denmark) and Kerry Hill Architects (Singapore).
The project consists in a performing arts and cultural centre that includes a 1600-seat concert theatre, 400-seat theatre, educational centre, rehearsal rooms, and galleries.
As you can see on the renderings, the building is mainly a carved volume, with voids crossing it creating several visual relations.
On the outside, the volume looks very simple, contrasting with the carved spaces that express themselves on the facade.
