Transforming A Gym to Concert Hall in Hungary by Dániel Baló + Dániel Eke + Zoltán Kalászi

Transforming of an established existing interior of a heritage architecture is a kind of project which needs more attention details rather than develop the whole structure from zero. The 10th century building, Benedictine Pannonhalma Archabbey is currently supplemented by the Benedictine High School. Since 2005, the school uses the boarding school’s gym for a three day spiritual exercise in the form of music, theater and art called The Pannonhalma Arcus Temporum Festival.

The 2012 event, the gym interior transformations are being worked by three Hungarian architects Dániel Baló, Dániel Eke and Zoltán Kalászi. They built a specifically fitted installation for the gym using two elements: the light bulbs to form a strict geometrical grid, and the parallel waving layers of the translucent textile which also designed to improve the gym’s acoustics.

As the fabric prevails over the beams and walls, the room’s boarders are blurred by the use of different outlines and the translucent, opalescent texture of the fabric’s layers. Two main functions, auditorium and stage are defined by using point lights which are hidden among the waving textile layers above the auditorium, and come into view above the stage thus bringing the musicians into focus.

    In centralizing the “right to marry” in its debate, the LGBT movement has failed to build bridges with the immigrant rights movement, which has long been fighting for the rights of immigrant families to reunite with each other.
