Located in Niigata city, Akiha Ward Cultural Center is a public theater with 496 seats. This building is designed to be a cultural incubator for the locals. The global formation of the building is terraced landscapes like hills near the site. The planning was developed through workshops with the locals. To connect the global formation and the planning based on the workshop, the structural concrete walls are bent and twisted. The main hall is as if a concrete cave in which the structural element itself works as acoustic reflectors which give extraordinary acoustics.
