OMA's Casa da Musica in Porto, Portugal has always been my favorite design. The angled faces with the precise glass windows creates a concert hall that frames the surronding context of the city.
For my structures final presentation @ Cornell, I attempted to rebuild the structure of the building. Arup allowed for the design to funtion off of two separate structures, the shell + the core.
