contributed by Joao_Sousa

The KKL Luzern was built in record time, five years, between 1995 and 2000. The work of French architect Jean Nouvel and American acoustician Russell Johnson replaced Armin Meili’s (1933/34) building. The construction is divided into three parts and made up of the Concert Hall, a multifunctional Lucerne Hall as well as the Convention Centre with its Auditorium and the Museum of Art Lucerne. One of the most important features of the KKL Luzern is that all kinds of different events may take place under the same gigantic roof. Not only separately and next door to each other but – with transparent boundaries – also together. These events encompass the fields of culture, convention and cuisine. The building stands out especially because of its huge roof, which has become the trademark of the KKL Luzern. It is the ideal component to compliment the natural landmark Mount Pilatus and the historical trademark Chapel Bridge.
