Zlin Concert Hall, Czech Republic, central Eastern Europe
Design: Eva Jiricna Architects Limited, London, UK
Zlin Concert Hall Building
The new complex buildings are located in downtown Zlin and consist of a Congress Centre for the City and Library for the University of Tomas Bata. The setting of both buildings is a response to the surrounding urban axis and local massing of adjacent buildings. Each building is located on a very restrictive plot owned by various institutions. Their orientation and organic shapes allow the buildings to ‘peel’ away from each other, creating their own identity whilst being set in a unifying landscape. The oval Congress Centre consists of two levels of underground parking, a main auditorium seating 850 and a smaller one for 80 seats, three levels of associated facilities and restaurant for 150 diners.

Dune Formations is an organic ensemble of unique furniture elements ranging from wall shelving units, tables, benches and an artificial tree. Every piece of the installation challenges traditional Cartesian geometries by blending vertical and horizontal into continuous three-dimensional surfaces. Advanced 3d modelling techniques are combined with the processes of digital production and innovative materials.

A cultural hub for the community, the new building is intended to function as a welcoming place for everyone to experience the arts. The two-storey, 43,000 square foot museum-quality exhibition space will include galleries for rotating exhibitions, a 240-seat state-of-the-art auditorium, expanded classrooms, a public resource center, offices and reception areas, an underground parking garage, and a multi-use landscaped park-like outdoor area.
