The world-renowned Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) has been selected to build the new Sverdlovsk Philharmonic Concert Hall in Yekaterinburg, Russia. The firm’s winning proposal, which beat out 47 other competitors, is a unique build based on the idea of a sound wave.

Taking the city’s rich musical history into account, the building is based on “the properties of musical sound resonance creating wave vibrations in a continuous smooth surface.”

A 1,600-seat Concert Hall and 400-seat Chamber Music Hall are “nestled within the surface deformations of the suspended canopy.” Floating above the ground, the plaza below will serve as a vibrant meeting place for city dwellers.

Upstairs, a rooftop terrace overlooks the City’s Church of All Saints. Check out a selection of images above and be sure to visit ZHA online for more details.
