"The performance hall is a bit underwhelming. The façade of the building looks really cool but watching any lecture series or—god forbid—some kind of performance in that performance hall would be uncomfortable at best."
"Most of the seating is all on the same level, and the dome appears to obstruct views of the people in the retractable seating. Also, is that a drop ceiling in the back? I guess that might help dampen all of the echoes from the dome... If you're building a purpose-built performance center it's kind of shameful if the experience is no better than a hotel banquet hall."—everyman [Rem Koolhaas' Faena Forum Will Be a Multilevel Fun-Plex]
