Being the cultural capital of Europe in 2002 was an ideal opportunity for Bruges to proof that it evolves in time despite its historical, preserved character. With this glorious year in sight, some architectural fireworks were realised in the centre. Paul Robbrecht and Hilde Daem were commissioned for the construction of the hypermodern Concertgebouw (concerthall), after winning a design competition in 1999. The design criteria for the concert building related to openness and adventure, innovation and a modern image but also to safety and functionality. The result is a sometimes surprising and creative ode to Bruges and the city's dreams. The building has an overall size of 120 metres by 50 metres. An eye-catching feature is the so-called 'Lantern Tower', which is slightly separate from the main volume and is 28 metres and eight storeys high and overlooks the Zand. In this tower is a chamber music hall with seats for 300.
