The Philharmonie is located on the Kirchberg plateau, right at the center of a triangular site surrounded with offices and European administration buildings. Filtering light, a vast peristyle composed of 827 columns constitutes the foyer all around the Grand Auditorium.

The latter appears as cliff bearing luminous faults. A long footbridge leads to the balconies and to the administrative facilities. The Grand Auditorium is characterized by 8 balcony-towers vertically distributed around the orchestra and the orchestra pit. The audience unites all around the musicians. The Music Chamber Hall is an external volume shaped as a twisted petal in order to avoid sound focusing effects as well as to create a space coiling up around the core building.
