AUDITORIUM PARCO DELLA MUSICA
The ‘Parco della Musica’ auditorium is a multi functional complex, built in the Parioli district of Rome, to host musical and cultural events. The project is characterized by three concert halls, Santa Cecilia, Sinopoli and Petrassi which constitute the bulk of the project, real “harmonic boxes”, gigantic musical instruments of enormous dimensions arranged in a radial pattern around an open theater , ‘la Cavea’, a fourth hall with a capacity of 3000 seats that symbolizes the focus of the entire project.
The surrounding space, where buildings never exceed the height of the cavea, houses service areas, recording studios and rehearsal rooms surrounded by a 30,000 sqm suspended park, located between the banks of the Tiber, the hill and the village Olympic. Materials were carefully selected that draw from the Roman tradition: travertine slabs to cover the steps of the cavea, the foyers and the entrances; handmade Roman brick to cover all vertical surfaces; pre-oxidized lead for the coverings of the rooms.
The structural complexity of the Auditorium “Parco della Musica”, attention to detail, elegant design in particular of the covering elements and the side panels remain a testament to the complexity of the work.
SCE Project has been involved in the technical and construction structural design of the wooden lamellar and steel structures of the external covering of the three rooms and of the cavea structures and in the structural construction management.
