Injection introduces randomness, improvisation, and intimacy to the architecture of musical performance centers.
A once-perfect cube is pierced by a worm-like volume, establishing a freespace for people and music to share.
An opera house floats in the cube above a seedy club sunken in the building's plinth. The Worm sustains a connection between diverse guests, performers, and their music—creating unity through division.
Injection is embedded in its industrial setting at the Port of Los Angeles by its lively expression of steel structure.
The Cube's cladding shifts from clear glazing to a patchwork of frosted glass, solar panels, and steel plate as it reacts to the Worm's interference.
The building's mission is carried through to the most fundamental level, as seen in this structural model.
The Worm overlooks an outdoor bandstand carved into the site.
Glass bridges and steel tension rods weave across the Worm, joining theater and mezzanine.
