'Huge verve and brio - fantastic drawing'

  • Comment

COMMENDATION PASCAL BRONNER THE BARTLETT SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE Symphonic Cannon Tutors: Agnieszka Glowacka, Sabine Storp The building is a stage for opera and theatre for the people of Malta. Resting on the stony remains of the Royal Opera House, it is like a sculpture on a plinth. And, like a giant gramophone, it amplifies the orchestral sound on to adjacent streets and into Freedom Square, which becomes the auditorium. The building has its own airship, which, rising to a height that can be seen from far beyond the city walls, is a symbol of celebration and, like a silent church bell, draws in the crowds.
