ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST: Robots Built the Penthouse Inside This Incredible Concert Hall

The future of Construction and design:

Built on top of a historic warehouse, the venue is wrapped in curved sheets of glass that reflect the city and sky.

After a construction project lasting more than ten years, Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron’s Philharmonic concert hall in Hamburg opened to overwhelmingly rave reviews in January. The 2,820-seat venue, built within and atop a 1960s warehouse by Werner Kallmorgen, is a stunning feat of design (with an equally lofty price tag of nearly $1 billion). Now details and renderings for a soaring private aerie, located on the building’s 24th and 25th floors, with their unobstructed views over the Elbe River, have been released.
