Simplicity at its best resides in the philharmonic hall in Szczecin, Poland envisioned by Barozzi/Veiga; the beautiful shape accommodates a concert hall and a chamber music hall. From the ground level the presence of the massive structures does not harm through its ethereal white presence as every volume is fragmented, part of a bigger whole that encapsulates frozen architecture, music, life.
The facade recalls traditional architecture through its vertical proportions and steep pitches as it responds to a nearby industrial influence through its scale. The ethereal aspect has been obtained thanks to a translucent grass that creates contrast with the immediate surroundings, dispersing its image in skies in an image, in perspective.
The insertion has immediately become a reference point in the area in which it beauty resides as a symbol of the city`s natural, transitional nature.
Simple architecture of scaled, as a mass, making a statement for the local traditional through its graphic expression.
White, transparent contrast with the greenery surrounding it and the industrial scenery nearby.
Impeccable stark white interior showcases the highest level of purity. Details highlight quality.
The interior is flooded by light.
Geometric motifs define the ensemble discreetly without interfering, being subdued to the massive ensemble.
Notice the immense beauty of a simple, white shape in a hybrid urban tissue.
