“我們可以將Odeon看做是對‘現代城市社區中心’的一種全新解讀。這座建筑將承載人們的生活日常、展覽活動、音樂會、戲劇和一些重要事件，乃至平時的聚會和用餐等。如今這一關于Odeon的構想已經成為現實，它在社區中扮演著文化生產者的角色。” —— C.F. Møller建筑事務所CEO及項目負責人Klaus Toustrup。
“Now we will really be able to see Odeon as a new interpretation of the ‘City’s Modern Community Centre’. This building will be buzzing with life all week, with exhibitions, concerts, plays and happenings, and with people meeting up for communal meals. Now we can see the vision for Odeon being achieved, as a culture generator for the community,” says Klaus Toustrup, CEO of C.F. Møller and the architect responsible for the Odeon project.
這座新的音樂廳和劇院是一座擁有四個舞臺場地的文化中心，其中還包括卡爾·尼爾森音樂學院的教學空間。主禮堂能夠容納約1800名觀眾，小禮堂容納約300名觀眾，另外還有私人音樂室和節奏室。文化中心還包含一間餐廳和能夠通往屋頂露臺的休閑吧，以及辦公室、食堂和地下停車場。項目場地位于Hans Christian Andersen Quarter，附近既有歷史街區，也有當代多層住宅。豐富多變的城市景觀是該建筑的靈感來源，一系列高低錯落的獨立洋房與周圍的建筑和諧地融為一體。建筑的體量被削減以降低對城市肌理的影響，各種被細分的小型城市空間則分布在音樂廳和劇院周圍。
The new music and theatre hall is created to be a cultural power centre with four stages and the Carl Nielsen Academy of Music under one roof. The great hall accommodates approximately 1800 spectators, while the small hall accommodates approximately 300 spectators. There is also a chamber music hall and a rhythmic hall. The Culture centre also has a restaurant, bar/lounge with access to a roof terrace, offices and canteen as well as a parking basement. The site is located in the Hans Christian Andersen Quarter and borders both the historical town and contemporary multi-storey housing. The varied townscape has provided inspiration for the architecture. The development is composed of a number of town houses, the heights of which vary in harmony with the neighbouring buildings. The volume of the building is thus reduced in its impact on the urban fabric, and the subdivision helps create varied and small-scaled urban spaces surrounding the Concert and Theatre Hall.
Two of the buildings stand out in their solidity: the Great Hall and the Stage Tower. With a luminous white exterior, these form a contrast to the otherwise dark relief facades, and help to bring a sense of identity to the cultural centre. The white surfaces can be used for image projections to tell the surrounding world about the activities in the building. The cultural centre will acquire the character of a city within a city, as the various buildings will be linked by glass-roofed arcades, squares and open spaces which connect with the surrounding neighbourhoods.
The foyer acts as a ‘cultural marketplace’ all day long, and the highly flexible acoustic and functional layout of the great hall, with its basic geometry inspired by the Italian baroque theatres, guarantees a multitude of uses besides concerts and opera, such as dance performances, conferences, fashion shows etc.
