 Project Info:
 
Architects: Shigeru Ban and Jean De Gastines
Surface Area: 36,500 sqm

In 2013, Japanese architect Shigeru Ban was selected to design a major new music venue in France. Four years later, the development has now opened to the public on île seguin, an island on the seine river in Paris’ western suburbs. The flagship project is located on a city-owned 2.35 hectare plot and extends nearly 280 meters along the riverbank.

Developed in collaboration with local architect Jean De Gastines, Shigeru Ban’s ship-like design responds to the curvature of the island as well as its industrial heritage. The project’s defining feature is a spherical auditorium with a ‘sail’ of photovoltaic panels, which moves in response to the sun’s path across the sky. Conceived as a new symbol for western paris, ‘La Seine Musicale’ also seeks to stand as a landmark of sustainability for the city.

Dedicated to classical and contemporary non-amplified music, the 1,150-seat auditorium has been designed to foster visual and acoustic intimacy between the performers and the audience. Surrounding the stage, interior walls and ceilings have been covered with a variety of timber forms and patterns that establish a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Alongside the auditorium, the scheme also includes a large multipurpose concert hall, a smaller classical music venue, rehearsal and recording rooms, and a range of retail outlets. With a public rooftop park that extends inside the building itself, a clear emphasis has been put on the scheme’s accessibility and the inclusion of welcoming civic facilities.
