Modern Architecture: Elaborate Opera House in Turkey (4 pics)


Architecture firm Ozel Office designed this elaborate proposal for the Izmir Opera House in Turkey. Envisioned as an extension of the existing cultural landscape of the city, the structure is ”a catalyst that reinforces the relationship between the old city, the new city, the waterfront, and urban culture. In short, our vision is a synergy of spatial, cultural, as well as practical and contextual aesthetics.”

The opera house’s draped form was designed to ensure “an uninterrupted integration” of the existing with the new. This seamless integration allows cultural happenings, such as ballet and opera, to become threaded into the fabric of daily life.

“We believe that Izmir needs a contemporary tower that signifies and marks its new and emerging priorities and announces its progressive cultural agenda," says Ozel Office.
