From human being origins, people doing circles around someone who is speaking, singing, dancing or arguing – under a tree shadow if possible – has been the main characteristic of performing.

Our music halls maintain this original condition and extend their geometry to the whole complex, which turns into a group of big trees with a stratified structure, as the local tropical forest, working at the same time as a functional scheme and an environmental strategy:

– Over the trees a roof tour that conform a new landscape is proposed, giving identity to the complex.

– Music Halls are in the trees, organized around a principal lobby and two secondary ones. Each hall adopts a particular configuration reinforced by its different coloration (gold silver, bronze).

– Under the trees, topography splits in two: Upwards, composing a park protected from the sun and the rain. Downwards composing a complex of commercial galleries that extend the activity from Shilin Night Market and goes through the building.
