Critical research on acoustic design and their role of concert halls in the 21st century

This PLANE—SITE research project and video series looks at several concert halls — including Harpa in Reykjavik, Wroclaw’s National Forum of Music and the Philharmonie de Paris — that are redefining the architecture of performance.
