Berlin Philharmonie

Case Study | Hans Scharoun’s Berlin Philharmonie is defined by future musical moments yet to be experienced. The arrangements of spaces within the Philharmonie are designed as occasions that create a memory from its facade to the auditorium within. The architectural instances created within the auditorium are enhanced by the orchestra. “Man, music and space come together in a new relationship.”1 The relationship is seen in the rhythmic articulation of the concert hall. The rhythmic form of the Berlin Philharmonie lends itself to an exploration of form and function through the relationship of its facade and concert hall. The facade invites the spectator to anticipate the performance, the form details the program within.  | Collaboration with Trina D. Robinson
