Project Description

Composite Monolith

The Brugge Concert hall justifies a new category of monolith and an amended definition of the composite monolith. This new type of monolith is characterized by multiple, but limited figural readings of a project and is produced by a continuous skin that blurs the boundary between separate elements. These additional readings are not just allowed to occur, but are in fact encouraged by the implied continuities between different geometries set up by the designer. Finally, the composite monolith should be amended and re-understood as merely virtual.
