Thursday Thoughts – The Philharmonic Hall, Szczecin

From colour down to black and white – this concert hall is a fabulous piece of architecture. Viveka and I had a good hour’s rest here with a nice cup of coffee.

The architectural design resembles a palace of ice,

and was created by Barozzi Veiga, a Barcelona-based architect’s studio.

Finished 2014, it has two concert halls and can accommodate 1.145 people in all.

The Philharmonic Hall edifice has won many prestigious awards in architectural competitions.

Its greatest success is the European Union prize for contemporary architecture –

Mies van der Rohe Award, 2015.

  1. Fantastic architectural photos, Ann-Christine. You have a great eye for patterns and light. What a beautiful building. Love the woman in red, the chairs and the staircase especially.

  2. Incredible lines and curves. I love the pop of red in to top photo. The picture of the chairs against the wall I think is my favorite. It is a bit of an optical illusion.

    • Glad you enjoyed it, Marie! I felt a bit dizzy and could hardly look at the walls. They ”swam away” from my eyes. And, sometimes we are lucky – that lady in red came walking down the steps as I was drinking coffee. Guess if I was fast!
