Hall plans

The bold curves of Portzamparc's Philharmonie form an exceptional setting for musical events; be it symphonic orchestras, solo recitals, jazz concerts or more experimental settings with spatially arranged sounds – they all find perfect architectural conditions in the three complementary concert halls. The Grand Auditorium combines the proven acoustics of «shoe-box» concert halls with the qualities of the Shakespearean stage. The auditorium, consisting of a pit and eight lateral towers, resembles a lively meeting place surrounded by buildings. It holds up to 1,500 persons. The Salle de Musique de Chambre is bordered by elegantly curved walls; together with a characteristic sound reflector above the stage, they form a unique and intimate room for 300 listeners. The most flexible Espace Découverte welcomes up to 120 people. It is perfect for a wide variety of musical experiences, from experiments in the vast fields of electronics, film, video and art to interactive workshops for children and young people.
