New Sverdlovsk Philharmonic Concert Hall will bring sound to life
Zaha Hadid Architects is to build the new Sverdlovsk Philharmonic Concert Hall in Yekaterinburg, Russia after the practice’s design proposals were selected from 47 international teams.
The city of Yekaterinburg is Russia’s third largest economy with a rich musical tradition and a reputation as a cultural and artistic centre. The city’s Ural Philharmonic Orchestra has performed in more than 20 countries and collaborates with artists worldwide.
The orchestra cultivates aspiring young talent and performs to full houses all year round in the existing Sverdlovsk Philharmonic building that dates from 1936.
Its new home will provide an inspirational venue to meet the increasing popularity of the orchestra’s programme of concerts and also create a new public plaza for the city.
Comprising a 1,600-seat Concert Hall and a 400-seat Chamber Music Hall, the design of the new Philharmonic Concert Hall is based on the properties of musical sound resonance creating wave vibrations in a continuous smooth surface. The design re-interprets these physical acoustic properties to define spaces for the auditoria that are suspended within the canopy, appearing to float above the new civic plaza that is both the lobby of the Philharmonic Concert Hall and an enclosed urban square.
