JS Bach Chamber Music Hall by Zaha Hadid
Created for the Manchester International Festival. ZHA has designed a chamber music hall for solo performances of Johann Sebastian Bach’s chamber music masterpieces. The project’s form, a suspended ribbon of translucent lightweight synthetic fabric (150 g/m2) articulated by an internal steel structure, translates the intricate relationships of Bach’s harmonies into an architectural spatial condition. This voluminous ribbon swirls within the room, carving out a spatial and visual response to the intricate relationships of Bach’s harmonies.
