Podium X The Podium X is for speeches and performances, it also serves as a space to hold exhibitions and open discussions. The stage is set on a large piece of glass on the top of the building. There is also an opening on the second floor that allows people to see the performance from the first floor. By providing this opening, people can enjoy the performance from multiple spaces inside or even outside the podium. On two sides of the faade, there are lots of small complex openings allowing people to peak inside and add complexity to the exterior surface. Large open spaces around the podium give people the opportunity to experience the activities from more angles than the traditional podium. The main material of the podium is concrete and the secondary stage is made of wood. Although different colors and textures the podium comes together and stands out amongst the landscape of the podium playground.
