Although architect Jan Kaplicky, 71, passed away last week, more photos of his incredible final project have been recently uncovered: A concert hall with a stage in front of a real window.
The two-leveled building is set to be a concert hall, with a dark, undulating roof representing the color and shape of a sting-ray. Inside the architecture, the focus of the concert hall will be directed towards the stage, which uses a large oval window that frames the outside world as the backdrop scenery. It seems like a cool idea, but I could see how it could possibly become a distraction from the action that's happening on stage. (Streakers and attention seekers, anyone?)
