Barozzi/Veiga’s Philharmonic Hall stands out, ghost-like, surrounded by unremarkable buildings. Clad in glass and with a high double pitched roof pattern that resembles an intriguing fantasy construction. The facade changes in colour at night with the use of internal lightning. The white and minimal interior finds a contrasting richness and expressivity in the main hall through its gold-leaf covering.
