Music is not what it used to be. Technology and globalization have pushed the world to acquire a particular and diverse palate. Most of the musical events materialize either on stadiums or grand festivals and architecture needs to adapt to those changes.

We question the traditional way of hearing music and watching performances. The concept of the classic descendant seat rows is inefficient and lack isotopic and hearing qualities.

Our proposal inverts the traditional arrangement to attain a more rational distribution. Leaving the existing park and vegetation in their natural position, the spectators and the performers are separated from ground for a more sustainable and refined approach.

The building emerges from the ground as one of the hundreds of volcanoes in the country representing the birth of a new icon in its national architecture.
