Glasgow Royal Concert Hall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (402 words)
The Concert Hall was a byproduct of Glasgow's 1990 City of Culture status, and was intended as a replacement for St. Andrews Hall, which had been destroyed by fire in 1964.
The hall was seen as a major symbol of the city's regeneration after years of neglect and deprivation.
The hall occupies a site at the junction of Buchanan Street and Sauchiehall Street, which was once home to the Glasgow NAAFI, and the former Parliamentary Road, which was rendered derelict after the building of Buchanan St. Bus Station in 1978.
Abravanel Hall* (367 words)
The form of the hall is rectangular, which is characteristic of the world's finest symphony hall, such as "The Grosser Musikverinssaal" in Vienna, the "Concertgebouw" in Amsterdam (Netherlands), the "Avery Fisher Hall" in Washington D.C and the "Symphony Hall" in Boston.
o reach the hall you must pass through sound lock corridors which are designed to prevent the confusion and noise from the lobby from spilling into the concert hall.
To compliment this, the hall is adorned with more than 12,000 square feet of tempered glass made in England, the lobby of the hall orients itself toward the East and the former home of the Utah Symphony, the Salt Lake Tabernacle and Temple Square.
