The Philharmonie de Paris, a symphonic concert hall of 2,400 seats whose construction had been postponed for about twenty years, should complete the Cité de la Musique in early 2014. It is located in the Parc de la Villette in Paris.
Mainly dedicated to symphonic concerts, the Philharmonie de Paris will also present other forms of music, such as jazz and world music.
The project was announced on 6 March 2006 by the Minister of Culture and Communication, Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres; the Mayor of Paris, Bertrand Delanoë; and the Director of the Cité de la musique and of the Salle Pleyel, Laurent Bayle, during a press conference on the reopening of the Salle Pleyel, now linked with the Cité.
As far as acoustics are concerned, the concert hall will envelope the audience around the stage, following the model pioneered by the Berlin Philharmonie, in order to intensify the feeling of intimacy between the performers and their audience.
The Philharmonie de Paris will accommodate administrative offices for several orchestras, an educational centre, exhibition spaces and a restaurant, as well technical and logistical infrastructure and a car park.
The cost of construction is expected to be 170 million euros, and will be shared by the national government (45 per cent), the Ville de Paris (45 per cent), and the Région Île-de-France (10 per cent).
In 2007, Jean Nouvel won the design competition for the auditorium. He brought in Brigitte Métra as his partner, along with Marshall Day Acoustics and Nagata Acoustics.
