Arquitectura Viva 193: Soundscapes - New Buildings For Music In Europe


Publisher Avisa

ISBN 02141256

Idea Code 17129


More than providing large spaces for music, opera houses and concert halls are expressions of the cultural and economic energy of the cities that build them, and ultimately crystallize the idea of ‘common ground’ in difficult, liquid times. Ignacio G. Pedrosa, expert on the matter, explains the evolution of the modern auditorium through examples like the Royal Festival Hall in London, the Kresge Auditorium, Massachusetts, and the Berliner Philharmonie, and this historical account, coming with a catalog of typological diagrams, is followed by four new European works: the Elbphilharmonie of Hamburg, the Philharmonie de Paris, the Greek National Opera in Athens, and the concert hall of the Jordanki Center in Torun.
