Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, Hamburg’s new concert hall opened last week – ten times over budget, the sculptural building offers world-class acoustics in a world-class architectural design. The Elbphilharmonie on the banks of the river Elbe, is supported by approximately 1,700 reinforced concrete piles. The concert hall is detached from the rest of the building for soundproofing reasons. Situated at a height of 50 metres above ground level in a unique location in Hamburg’s historic port, and with seating for 2,100 people, the Elbphilharmonie is the perfect symbiosis of architecture and music.
