Jean Nouvel | Website | 1998 | Visitor Information
Designed by architect Jean Nouvel and opened in 2000 KKL Luzern is comprised of three distinctive sectors: The conference and meeting room wing, complemented by a number of lounges and restaurants; A black box-style multipurpose hall, which presents events ranging from rock concerts to general assemblies; And, a Concert Hall distinguished by world-class acoustics designed by Russell Johnson’s Artec. A dozen years of constant use – with an impressive yearly booking rate of more than 90% – coupled with significant technological advances prompted the KKL Luzern management group to upgrade its retractable electro acoustical system. The project was divided into three phases: firstly the identification of the requirements, system planning and preparation of specifications, secondly the on-site evaluation of a total of three loudspeaker system candidates, and lastly the execution phase of installation planning, supervision and commissioning. Distinguished by its spectacular architecture and acoustics; its vast variable echo chambers and its unique Goll pipe organ, The KKL Luzern Concert Hall is an incomparable world-class venue. The new d&b V-Series sound reinforcement system, engineered, implemented and calibrated to the most demanding performance specifications, exceeds all quality requirements and significantly widens the hall’s usage profile. WSDG is exceptionally proud to have been associated with this important and artistically significant project.
