Musikkens Hus is not only an architectonic lighthouse of Aalborg and Northern Jutland, but also very much a national and international rendezvous of music, where visitors brought together by music.
The construction of Musikkens Hus is one of the most ambitious and impressive projects in the history of Aalborg. The road to a house of music in Northern Jutland has spanned 28 years. However, natives of Northern Jutland are very persistent, so now, the house is ready to welcome all with a musical interest.
Architectonic brand with the music in focus
The vision for Musikkens Hus in Northern Jutland was to create a venue for concerts with acoustics on international level. The house is built around the idea of generating synergy, and sharing of expertise and knowhow among the many users and guests of the house.
The permanent residents of Musikkens Hus include Aalborg Symphony Orchestra, the Jutlandic Academy of Music - Aalborg, the music educations of Aalborg University, Centre of Danish Jazz History and Musikkens Spisehus.
Musikkens Hus is designed by the renowned, Austrian architect firm, Coop Himmelb(l)au and covers approx. 20.000 m2 divided onto eight floors (three underground), and contains a large concert hall, a medium concert hall, and two minor concert halls.
Musikkens Hus will make a difference
”Aalborg is undergoing a powerful and positive transformation in these years, and Musikkens Hus has the power to multiply the local cultural offers," states Mayor Thomas Kastrup-Larsen.
