Crashing Waves: Tongyeong Music Hall
Location : Tongyeong, South Korea
For the architects, the competition to design a concert hall honoring composer Isang Yun in Tongyeong, South Korea, began with a trip to Korea to see the site: a plot of land on a large island with commanding views of the downtown district and the various surrounding mountainous islands. The site sits sixty feet above the ocean and is exposed on all sides. To understand how the view would change in the future with the presence of the symphony hall complex, the architectural team went out on a ferry boat to see the site from the water.
