PAVILION 21 MINI Opera Space is an experimental performances hall built for the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, Germany. The Pavilion 21 Mini Opera Space creates a space with 300 seats (or 700 standing spectators). Austrian architecture firm COOP HIMMELB(L)AU have unveiled their revolutionary design of a mobile structure that can be taken a part, relocated, and re-mounted in any other location making the respective urban space distinctive through its shape. The aluminum structure is made up of sharp pyramid-like geometry to maximize the sound’s reflection area.
Here’s a part of the designer’s statement:
“Mass & weight are the decisive criteria for good acoustics. The conception of the Pavilion 21 MINI Opera Space therefore had to overcome a contradiction; to a design of a lightweight construction which must allow to be dis- and re- assembled quickly, but which at the same time meets the acoustical requirements of a concert hall”
