Columbian architect Tomas Santacruz was selected as the winner of AC-CA’s ‘Tokyo Music Centre’ competition. His concept is a four level structure, which besides a large auditorium, includes a café, restaurant, and multiple practice and changing rooms. The structure is defined largely by its cantilevered wooden roof, which gives the building a sense of lightness in contrast to its actual size. Located in a crowded area of the city, the ‘Tokyo Music Centre’ features unique interior and exterior spatial combinations that connect with visitors in many ways.
