Authors’ Comment

The project proposal is located in the cultural, social and historical center of Constanta. The city is well known for its multiculturalism, music festivals, outdoortheatre concerts and for its harbor for the Black Sea, being in a continuous development. The choice of this site was dictated by the subjective perception of the aesthetic and functional conflict highlighted in this area.
The shape is molded on the contour of the opera auditorium volume and focuses on the main entrance that allows access from the city and the southern direction to the sea that allows access from the port. The proposal is shaped as an urban generator approach, aimed to revitalise the promenade by implanting a multifunction hall in order to be a new cultural center. An cultural complex that host commercial premises, restaurants, offcies, meetings rooms, a 850 multipurpose conference hall. At the center of this complex, rises the opera auditorium with 1248 seats, to be the pearl of this complex.
