Atlanta’s New Hall

“For its new Symphony Center, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has approved a risky, radical interior design that departs from traditional concert halls. The unorthodox plan… features surround seating and a ceiling that moves up and down, one of the few of its kind in the world. The center — expected to open in 2008 — is intended to lift the 58-year-old orchestra up from its acoustically atrocious Symphony Hall.”
