Ateliers Jean Nouvel has won the international competition to design a new orchestra hall in Paris. The € 200 million Philharmonie de Paris, which will become the new home for the Orchestre de Paris – currently based at the Salle Pleyel, will be built in the city's famous Parc de Villette.

The 20000 m2 concert hall will be clad in aluminium and includes multi-level terraces arranged in a ‘vineyard style', which means none of the 2400 audience is more than 30 m away from the conductor. Construction is due to start later this year with the Philharmonie de Paris expected to open its doors in 2012.
