Brisbane Opera House of the future?

Brisbane Opera House of the future?

Every now and again we hear mumblings about Brisbane one day having an Opera House of its own. This is one university student’s recent concept drawing of what it could look like if built the river side of Brisbane Square, a podium traversing the Riverside Expressway. Jesse Lockhart-Krause says the 1400 seat building would be chameleon-like, “changing its face according to night and day”.

It’s a stunning piece of left-field thinking…. very cool. It’d also be a neat way of linking the arts precinct of South Bank with the CBD.
