The topic of the competition is the design of a multi-purpose centre of the South Czech Philharmonic with a variable hall for an audience of up to 1,000 persons, combined with an open stage for open-air concerts with all the necessary amenities for the artists as well as for the visitors of the cultural installation of the South Czech Philharmonic.
Knowledge about modular construction and the use of the system in practice is a principal aim of the competition. The competition will especially award creative approaches with atypical solutions to the presented problems. The assessment will also consider the quality of the architectural and urban solution of the design, the layout and functional solution of the designs, as well as its originality. For the design itself, it is important to explore modular technology and its limits, to examine the contribution of modular architecture as well as the application of sustainable principles in designing modular buildings.
