The construction of the concert hall, whose foundation was laid in 1995, has reached the stage of completion with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
The musical complex is coming to the heart of Ankara on a sight-axis between the Historical Citadel and Atatürk’s Mausoleum. Costing some 83 million Euros, the musical campus, as the home base for the Presidential Symphony Orchestra founded in 1826, will host most respectful orchestras and soloists from all around the world. A skillful team of management will support orchestra’s day to day operations.
The building complex will house 2023 seats capacity “Grand Hall'', 500 seats capacity “Blue Hall'' and the 600 seats “Historical Symphony Hall” which will be integrated shortly after restoration. The venue will quickly establish itself as a meeting place for culture fans with its restaurants, museum and open air spaces.
The CSO concert hall, which is the first concert hall in the world to open after the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie concert hall, which was completed in 2017, will present a great gain to the world music family with its architectural, artistic and social approach.
The concert hall presents a symbolic behavior that will not wear out over time at the city scale rather than a building that is acknowledged with a design language that can be valid for a certain period of time and has come to the fore with this attitude. The architectural form basically consists of two opaque glass clad spheres with a dramatic glass triangle in between. All located in the middle of a rectangular body of water. This strong geometrical form emphasizes the monumental and timeless spirit of the design.
