The Concertgebouw is a cultural complex in Bruges. The building, located on 't Zand, was built for "Bruges 2002 European Capital of Culture", although there were already plans in the 1990s to start such a project in Bruges, based on the province of West Flanders.

The building
The building was designed by the architect duo Paul Robbrecht and Hilde Daem. The facades are lined with thousands of red terracotta tiles, 68,000 in total, all baked in Saint-Omer in Northern France. The Lantern Tower itself consists mainly of glass. The interior is rather sober.

In addition to a large concert hall with 1290 seats on three levels, there is a chamber music hall that can accommodate 320 spectators. On the ground floor there is the Concertgebouw café and on the seventh floor, the top floor of the Lantern Tower, there is an exhibition space for contemporary art. It also has a good view over the city. Thanks to a number of special architectural interventions, such as the 4,696 springs on which the entire building rests, the Concertgebouw offers excellent acoustics and is among the best in the world.

I hope you like it
