This is a follow-up article to 'Opera Copenhagen' , please read original article first.


The acoustic design of the Opera provides excellent conditions for the production, rehearsal and performance of opera and ballet.

The main auditorium, with which the musical director Michael Schønwandt and the Opera Director Kasper Holten are delighted, includes a very flexible orchestra pit.

Elevators allow 3 pit sizes and there is the option to use overhung areas at the sides and rear of the pit. These areas can be closed off with acoustical panels, which can be reversed to provide local sound absorption or reflection.

A modular orchestra pit rail allows for acoustic transparency or reflection so that the sound from different sections of the orchestra may be more easily balanced.

With a clean crisp modern language, Arthur Casas produced this residence in Jardim Paulista, São Paulo.

The architect valued the existing vegetation, and conceived the house in a way that preserves all the trees. The house was constructed in two lots. One of them was left almost intact, because there was some Atlantic Jungle species still survinving,  this area has become one of the most valuable regions of the city.

The Silverman Residence, juxtaposed in a non-descript neighborhood in Scottsdale, Arizona renders itself as architecture.


Upon approach, the street side façade (North Elevation) is a composition of white stucco finished volumes which are unified by a cantilevered steel structural element painted black. The steel element comprises an entrance canopy to the North and a balcony to the South that overlooks a lap/reflecting pool, as well as, the man made lake of which the neighborhood surrounds.

Upon entering the residence, a soaring volume is immediately encountered providing views to both the lower and upper level of the residence. The only demarcation between the two levels is a simple glass railing, creating a spaciousness not normally introduced into residential construction.

Belzberg Architects - The Conga Room at L.A. Live
Monday, 22 June 2009 08:13

Conga_Room_01For over a decade, the Conga room has been a Los Angeles cultural landmark. The Latin live music and dance venue was LA’s center for Salsa and Rumba. The original location closed in 2006 with the goal of opening a new venue in the new “LA Live” complex in Downtown, Los Angeles.

The new home would contain a 16,000 sq ft live music and dance space made up of a multitude of programs—a large dance floor, a stage, multiple VIP areas, a full-service restaurant and three bars, each with their own unique environment. Collaboration with Cuban artist Jorge Pardo and Mexican muralist Sergio Arau, designers of the Papaya Bar and Surface Tattoos, respectively, was essential.

The Baltic Sea Comes To Life at Ozeaneum, as Behnisch Architekten Completes the Oceanographic Museum.

The weather-beaten city of Stralsund on the Baltic Sea is humming with excitement, thanks to the addition of Ozeaneum, the new German Oceanographic Museum designed by Behnisch Architekten. The well-known firm works out of offices in Stuttgart, Germany, as well as both Los Angeles and Boston in the U.S.


This aquarium is built right along the city’s harbor promenade surrounded by historic warehouses. It’s an open structure flooded from all sides by people and light, similar to the way stones in the sea near the water’s edge are flooded by the surrounding water.

homestead_house_01Inspired by his experimental design work in the late 1960s as an undergraduate at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, Michael Jantzen decided to re-examine the potential use of certain readily available agricultural building components in the creation of alternative housing systems.

The Homestead House is a conceptual design for alternative housing that explores the potential use of a commercially available steel, prefabricated, modular, high strength, low cost, arch building system normally used for agricultural purposes.
