Designers Diller Scofidio + Renfro have re-imagined the London Symphony Orchestra and Guildhall School of Music & Drama at the Barbican. The tapering tower that is estimated to cost around £288 million will be built on the southern edge of the Barbican Centre, where the Powell & Moya-designed Museum of London currently sits. Many already call it the ‘concert hall for the 21st century’.
The project would have an outdoor stairway that doubles as an amphitheatre and will connect the venue to the Barbican high walk network while leading up one of the entrances.
“We imagine a concert hall for the 21st century that embraces both a bespoke and a loose fit approach: tailored for exceptional symphonic sound, yet agile enough to accommodate creative work across disciplines and genres” said Elizabeth Diller, founding partner of Diller Scofidio + Renfro and who was recently named the world's most influential Architect by Time magazine.
