I wish I had worked on the Parco della Musica auditorium by Renzo Piano. I admire it so much. My dream would be designing a music house. Music is so fine field of art, it is totally abstract, just beauty.
The Parco della Musica by Piano has a strong sculptural image, it is a social meeting place of people and the interior of the main auditorium is warm, made of wood. It is like being inside a musical instrument which has fine acoustics.
