Beijing Set to Build Translucent Philharmonic Concert Hall
China is taking the music world by storm with recently released plans to build the world's first translucent philharmonic concert hall in Beijing.
Set to start building the beginning of this year, this 11,600 square foot structure with which to dazzle patrons and concert goers alike, spanning across two floors. The construction of the building is said to be in a 'D' shape and fully cloaked in a translucent material.
The goal of the concert hall is to create a seperate and soothing oasis from the hustle and bustle of Beijing's city streets. The open layout of the hall, combined with courtyard views of a tranquil lotus pond and foliage are meant to evoke a feeling of serenity, much in the same way music can take you on an auditory escape.
The auditorium will be able to hold upwards of 1600 guests, and feature acoustic paneling parellel in shape to that of the lotus flower petals in the garden. Creating the space to resemble a blooming flower was important to the design aesthetic of the concert hall.
