Architizer has recognized this recently completed performance venue as a winner of a 2018 A+ Award in the Cultural: Hall / Theater category.
Designed in collaboration with theater planners Fisher Dachs, Lotte Concert Hall is a full-sized, 2,000-seat classical performance hall located on the roof of the Lotte World Mall. Part of the Lotte World Tower complex, Lotte Concert hall is recognized as one of the foremost venues of its kind in Asia, boasting world-class acoustics and sumptuous, terraced interiors designed in the vineyard style. The swelling form of the Concert Hall is a reaction to the curves that surround it – the subtle lines of the tower, the “scoop” of public plaza below, and the rounded corners of the adjacent cinema tower. Breaking from the more orthogonal resolution of those areas, the swelling exterior shell of the concert hall is more sensual, with arched cutouts of vertical glass wall interrupting the form. Given the range of performance types – from solo pieces to symphonies – the Hall includes several elements that allow it to provide the optimal sound for a given performer, including a “round-type stage lift” to alter the height of the stage and an “acoustic banner” that allows for minute adjustment of the reverb in the Hall.
