Koktebel. It's a little village situated on the southeast coast of the Crimean peninsula. In spite of difficult demographic situation in Ukraine, Koktebel is a rare location where you can find positive tendencies of population growth. The main source of income is tourism indusrty. Today we can find rather low level of infrastructure and entertainment industry there. It can cause the development termination and population decrease as a result. One of the solutions of this problem is creating some unique architectural objects which will attract tourists from the whole world through some special characteristics, besides performing some functional load. Koktebel is also a center of jazz life of Ukraine. You can find several festivals and contests of this style here every year. That's why constructing a concert and entertaining complex looks like a very promising investment. It’s not a secret that nowadays digital technologies work in every sphere of our daily life and music isn’t an exception. The next evolutionary stage of jazz development is so-called Nu Jazz or digital jazz.
Dynamic structure is the main feature of the project. It serves as a visual connection of external and internal and also as an information transmitter. Sound waves form dynamic geometry of kinetic units in the interior and specular - on the outside. As a result, while observing from the outside dynamic transformations of the surface, we may guess what exactly happens inside and therefore decide whether this event (concert) satisfies us or not.
