Uppsala Concert and Congress Hall, Sweden
Swedish Concert Hall building – design by Henning Larsen Architects
15 Nov 2007
Uppsala Concert & Congress Hall Building
Henning Larsen Architects won the international, open competition for Uppsala Concert and Congress Hall, among 134 proposals from all over the world.
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.
Uppsala Concert and Congress Hall contains a large, flexible banquet and exhibition area, a concert hall for symphonic music performances with 1,250 seats and two smaller halls.
