It’s an international concert venue, built with extreme attention to acoustical detail. It is mostly formed from solid, reinforced concrete, molded and cast to resemble a giant sculpture. The roof appears to hover above the building and the entire structure floats on almost 300 earthquake-proof springs. The lack of a rigid connection between the building and its foundation ensures the acoustics are protected from outside noise and vibration « less
