Kammermusiksaal (Chamber Music Hall) and Philharmonie The Philharmonie was the first of a series of buildings which would create a Kulturforum (including the Kammermusiksaal, Staatsbibliothek, and Neue Nationalgalerie) in an area of Berlin leveled before the war by Speer. The site of the Kulturforum was near the former center of Berlin at Potsdamer Platz and was adjacent the the Berlin Wall and was intended by Scharoun to be the seed of a cultural center for a reunited Berlin. The construction of the Kammermusiksaal (chamber music hall) in 1987 completed Hans Scharoun’s concept for the Kulturforum almost thirty years after construction had started on the Philharmonie in 1960. The basic concepts of the building are clearly related to its next-door neighbor, the Philharmonie. The building is designed from the inside-out, with blocks of seating accommodating the audience in a 360 degree rake around the central stage. If the central stage arrangement was an experiment in the Philharmonie, it was taken for granted—and taken further—in the Kammermusiksaal; seats are configured to allow moving ensembles and experimental music, in which performers are placed in multiple locations germany.archiseek.com/brandenburg/berlin/kammermusiksaal....

This postwar building seeks to break down traditional hierarchies of power and order in a few ways. In terms of site planning, it's placed so as to deflect the Potsdamerplatz - formerly one of the great Nazi parade routes through Berlin. (This is quite clear if you pull this building up on the map.) As a concert hall, it's arranged with the performance space in the middle and an exuberant variety of different balconies dispersed around. The hope was that this strategy, combined with a careful attention to acoustics, would ensure that there were no bad seats. In practice, this isn't 100% true - our cheap seats later this evening definitely had their acoustic minuses.... but they were absolutely fabulous compared to the cheap seats at the much more traditionally-designed Staatsoper in Vienna, where I could, with great effort, managed to see the heads of three or four members of the orchestra and about 3/5 of the stage set. Bravo Scharoun! This is an example of an image from the stage in the trip when I had my mini-tripod but had mislaid my cable release, so getting non-shaky photos of stuff like this was tough. I picked up another cable a day or two into Vienna....

gesehen von der Promenade des Kammermusiksaals. --- Das mächtige „Bücherschiff“ gehört zum Kulturforum Berlin, es wurde von 1967 bis 1978 nach Plänen des Architekten Hans Scharoun errichtet. Nach Scharouns Tod im Jahr 1972 wurde das Gebäude von seinem Schüler Edgar Wisniewski vollendet. Die Raumkomposition des Gebäudes steht mit seiner beeindruckenden Leselandschaft für Offenheit und Gemeinschaft. Einem breiten Publikum ist das Gebäude der Staatsbibliothek auch durch den preisgekrönten Film Himmel über Berlin von Wim Wenders bekannt geworden. Dieser Standort entwickelte sich in den nächsten Jahren zur Bibliothek der Moderne. ---- dahinter die Türkis-Kuppel des Imax, Theater am Potsdamer Platz (Berlinale Palast), Debis-Haus, Imax inzwischen geschlossen.

Hans Scharoun designed the hall, which was constructed over the years 1960-1963. It is a singular building, asymmetrical and tentlike, with the main concert hall in the shape of a pentagon. Source Wikipedia Die neue Philharmonie wurde 1960 bis 1963 von Hans Scharoun erbaut und am 15. Oktober 1963 eingeweiht. Sie gehört heute zusammen mit dem Kammermusiksaal und anderen Gebäuden zum Kulturforum Berlin am Potsdamer Platz Quelle: Wikipedia

Part of Scharoun's egalitarian agenda for the building was to break down the traditional grand staircase entrance to the concert hall, while still having an effective system for getting people to their sections and seats. The solution is a Piranesian world of stairways which, surprisingly, is quite easy to get around. I was quite impressed by the speed with which the population of the concert hall transferred itself to the lobby during intermission.

The street on which the Philharmonie building is located is named, logically enough, after its most famous conductor, Herbert von Karajan. What's even more interesting is that the street on the other side is called Ben-Gurion-Straße - in Berlin there's no escaping the weight of history ...

Lobby of the Berlin Philharmonie, which was fantastic. We saw a rehearsal, and got to see both the main hall, and the chamber hall.
