contributed by MI_MOA

The Parco della Musica is a large public music complex on the north side of Rome, exploiting a spacious site that was part of the 1960 Olympic area. It is composed of three separate giant bug-like halls whose forms are inspired by musical instruments. Positioned around an open air amphitheatre, the halls look like three enormous ‘music boxes’, whose colours and materials recall those of the domes dotting the urban landscape of Rome. Each concert hall differs from the other in terms of dimension and functions, but they are all characterized by an extreme flexibility and versatility of the space. By these means, space can be regulated and adjusted to the nature of performance, where floor and ceiling can be moved to adjust the acoustic properties of the wall. The interiors are entirely made of cherry-wood, which best resolved acoustic problems.

I was here on a vacation in april '08 and experienced the good acoustics of this building myself. The building fits very good in the surrounding environment.
