Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

Architect | Kate Hume

Location | Hamburg

Kate Hume’s project in Herzog and De Meuron’s building in Hamburg, Germany is a concert hall: the Elbphilharmonie. The building is conceived and formed by an intricate scheme of wake-like panels that create a never seen before façade.
The auditorium—the largest of three concert halls in the Elbphilharmonie—is a product of parametric design, a process by which designers use algorithms to develop an object’s form.
Luma by Zaha Hadid and Flow[T] by Nao Tamura have been chosen for the interior decoration of the building by the architect Kate Hume, creating elegance and dynamism on the inside of a perfectly developed architectural project.
