The Pavilion 21 MINI Opera Space is one of the tiniest but most interesting designs by Wolf Prix for the Munich Opera Festival 2010 with a maximum seat capacity of 300 only. The designers have achieved a visually and acoustically pleasing lightweight structure through enhancing the visualizing properties of the tilted walls and enlarged surface area. Also, this design strategy reduces the influence of external sound sources. The pavilion is 17 meters wide, 21 meters long and around 6 to 8 meters high which will be placed in a way that it will act more like a sound reflector than a barrier to the passing by car’s sound.
