The Hamburg Concert Hall finally wrapped up construction in November and is set to open next month in January - but despite that, feelings of animosity still remain towards the concert hall's development process, which was seven years behind schedule and cost $730 million over budget.

However, from a bystander's perspective, things might not look so bad from an aesthetic point of view. Featuring spiral staircases, glass facades, and a clean two-tone color scheme, the building is topped with a carved plaster ceiling imbued with a reptilian motif. Originally built from an old warehouse, the 2,100 person capacity auditorium soars to a height of 110 meters, making it the tallest inhabited building in Hamburg.

Again, the concert hall won't be opening until January, but thanks to drone technology you can now embark on a virtual tour of the building. Check it out here.
