            The music hall itself is two performances. During the day the cellular program of the education wing is on display through the walls of glass with the empty concert hall acting as the monument adjacent. At night the lobby becomes the centerpiece while the concert hall becomes a silhouette against the nearby mountain. The project also deals with the battle between the monumental and human scales. The three large volumes and massive lobby operate at the monumental while the education wing and benches in the exterior portions of the building act at the human scale. The circulation and spaces react accordingly to this, with the concert halls having grand staircases and massive lobbies while the education wing has small gathering spaces with a piranesian circulation.
