Designed by Jean Nouvel and inaugurated on 14 January 2015, the Philharmonie 1 is a mineral building with innovative forms, rising up like a hill within the Parc de la Villette. The aluminium swirls wrapped tightly around the concert hall contrast with the rest of its matt exterior. The exterior façade covering is composed of 340,000 birds, divided into seven different shapes and four shades ranging from light grey to black. More than 200,000 birds in aluminum sheeting are installed on the facades' to symbolize a grand take-off. The rooftop, 37 meters high, will be in the near term open to the public, visitors would have an expansive view of the city blending into the suburbs.
