The concert hall consists of a detached, sculpturally designed building that, with its ref lecting titanium facades, appears as a large, split crystal. The slots give the impression of rays of light opening up and revealing the inner perceptual spatiality of the volume. The building is cut vertically to give access from two sides and horizontally to give a panoramic view of the city. Both through the vertical and horizontal cut, it is possible to experience Uppsala’s most important historical buildings. In this way, the new Uppsala Concert Hall compliments and enters into the characteristic and historic context of the city.
