from a cultural point of view, the new music theater is an extremely important  project for linz. the linz opera building will be situated at volksgarten on the premises of the former blumauerplatz. this new cultural building will open up opportunities for positive and important developments in this part of





















the inner city. the surrounding landscape and the adjacent park  play a very important role in the structuring and development of the building. the relation between music theater, city and park, as well as the interaction between foyer and auditorium constitute an important aspect of the project.
