German Town Debuts Concert Hall Esconced in a Big Ol' Rock

New, 1 comment

Jutting from the ground at a strange angle, this stone concert hall in the village of Blaibach, Germany looks as if it could have been a meteorite that dropped from the sky into the middle of a plaza. Designed by the German architect Peter Haimerl, the monolithic, 200-person concert house is almost entirely subterranean, save for an entrance that is all but hidden beneath one of the cube's tilting sides.

Inside, the auditorium walls are made from layered concrete panels with discreet LED lights. The entire structure slopes downward; the tiered "floating" seating is so transparent that the blond wood stage is the true focal point. More photos, below:
