Sverdlovsk Philharmonic Concert Hall

You may have never heard of the city of Yekaterinburg in Russia, but it will soon be home to a stunning concert hall, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. The Sverdlovsk Philharmonic Concert Hall is a gorgeous example of form + function, mimicking the physical aspects of sound waves, with dramatic swooping curves and a massive suspended canopy.  Home to the Ural Philharmonic Orchestra, with a 1,600 seat main performance hall, and a 400 seat chamber music hall, the inspiring architecture should be a landmark for the city for decades to come.
