This is a just-built, striking new home for the Philadelphia Orchestra and other arts organizations! A $260 million structure, this building gives our orchestra a fabulous new home. The architecture is an experience in itself, and the music makes it world-class. Visit www.kimmelcenter.org to learn what's playing and to see a multi-media slide show about the building of the Center.
For now, enjoy the great views!
|The dramatic lobby of the Kimmel Center, showing the Perelman Theater in the foreground (black), and Verizon Hall (auburn wood).|
|This exterior view from South Broad Street shows the huge roof. Below it is a rooftop garden.|
|This view shows the adjacent building's rooftop frieze, just north of the Center, across the street, but still on South Broad.|
|Even walkways to enter Verizon Hall have their special drama.|
|Peer over any ledge or catwalk.|
|The interior of Verizon Hall resembles a cello.|
|The curved back of the hall still has excellent acoustics.|
|This timed-exposure view of the stage shows the orchestra, seats behind it (where a chorus sometimes stands), and the huge pipe organ.|
