From the architect. The re-design is intended to transform the venue from a good multi-purpose hall into a premiere chamber music venue with street identity and upgraded functionality for all performance needs. Tucked under The Juilliard School, the opaque base of Pietro Belluschi’s building is stripped away to reveal the hall’s outer shell.

The sloped underside of Juilliard’s expansion serves as the canopy framing the hall, its expanded lobby and box office. A shear one-way cable net glass façade puts the hall on display. The liner of African moabi is tailored around all existing hall features and new programmatic elements to eliminate visual noise and illumination emerges from the wood skin the way a bioluminescent marine organism exudes an internal glow.

A percentage of the wood liner is constructed of translucent custom-molded resin panels surfaced in veneer to match and blend seamlessly with the wood, binding the house and stage with light. Like the raising of a chandelier or the parting of a curtain signaling the start of performance, the blush will be part of the performance choreography: a hush will fall in the seconds of transition from distraction to attention when the blushing walls become the first performer.

nice.
It shows some interesting eloquence considering the place and the previous situation of the original building. The "cut off" corner that could be confused with something just for fun, but it is not (otherwise he could actually filled the project with some "cool slices" just to make it look "cool"), it is a way to establish the relation with the corner, introducing a new point of view to the original building. “Slicing the corner" and lowering the floor he creates some nice view towards the city. Regarding the bleachers going up at the corner (the small triangle that actually looks very useless), I would climb up there to enjoy the place :)
Maybe the back side of this small triangle on the bottom of the corner, if it is seen from outside, seems to be a little useless, but originally it was supposed to have an information kiosk down there, maybe also the pedestrian crossings should not run directly into the building, difficult to say only looking the pictures...

Of course it would be much clearer with some plans...

kevin · June 22, 2009

great. would love to see the plans as well.

tabitha · June 22, 2009

I have not yet been to the AT Hall so maybe it's just that the pictures don't make it justice...??? but I don't see such amazing spaces/architecture...I love DS+R but this building just doesn't do it for me...

Reminds me of the public library in Seattle, WA by Rem Koolhaas.. especially the large interior spaces surrounded by glass and odd shapes..
