The world’s first “acoustically perfect” concert hall opens in Germany 10,000 unique

The newly opened Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg, Germany is a visually stunning structure from a design perspective, with its gorgeous wave-shaped facade, curved elevators, and its seemingly endless stairs. However, the focal point of the $843 million building is its one of a kind central auditorium designed specifically for a balanced sound throughout the concert hall.

What Happens When Algorithms Design a Concert Hall? The Stunning Elbphilharmonie



The most interesting thing about Herzog and De Meuron’s newly opened concert hall, the Elbphilharmonie, isn’t its wave-like facade, which rises above the city of Hamburg, Germany. It’s not the gently curved elevator at the base of the lobby that deposits you into the belly of the Swiss architects’ alien landscape. And it’s not the Escher-esque stairways that guide you from one floor to the next.
Though Hamburg’s $843 million philharmonic is filled with stunning architectural gems, its most interesting feature is the central auditorium, a gleaming ivory cave built from 10,000 unique acoustic panels that line the ceiling, walls, and balustrades. The room looks almost organic—like a rippling, monochromatic coral reef—but bringing it to life was a technological feat.
The auditorium—the largest of three concert halls in the Elbphilharmonie—is a product of parametric design, a

That is a very beautiful hall but they pretty much say that for every single new hall that is getting built nowadays. Can’t wait to see the next more perfect “perfect hall”. As a Trombone player I do not understand surround halls, the last place I want to be is behind all the instruments that are playing the outer way. It would be like sitting behind your Projector screen in the next room, the picture would be okay (just flipped) but the sound.

Plus it looks very much like the St. David’s Hall in Wales Built in 1982 just with more curves and more modern.


Even the Paris Philharmonie in France does not look that far off.


In the long run, I love that there is still enough love for music, and that people will put money into halls like this.
