If you turned a real sound wave into a modern building, it would look like the Ural Philharmonic Orchestra. This 1,600-seat concert hall was designed by Zaha Hadid architects and blends the sound wave look throughout the interior as well with plenty organic shapes and clean curves. There’s also a smaller, yet just as elegant, 400-seat chamber-music hall housed within the steel structure. Read More for additional pictures and information.
“It’s this music hall that features a rather unique spectacle; in place of a backdrop behind the stage is a vast aperture, framing the view of the Weiner Gardens that surround the building. To complete the building and add to the ‘wow-factor’ even further, a roof terrace is integrated into the design, to offer guests views across Yekaterinburg,” according to Yanko Design.
