Competition finalist / Lanzarote, Spain, 2017

Project Team: Fadaifard Architects, Mengyi Fan (interiors & staging)


Proposed as a new civic amenity, the music center in Lanzarote engages its landscape to create a performance of its own. 

The project takes its cues from the island’s sub-tropical fauna and abundant sun. Courtyards resembling natural vitrines puncture the building to allow for light to reach rehearsal rooms and offices. The studio theater can be configured as a black box or a larger venue that folds out to the lobby and beyond. 

The idea of performance is not limited to one form, but rather explored in a series of spaces that weave together the exterior and interior.
