Showstopping and insightful, 'Elbphilarmonie' by Herzog & de Meuron at the Venice Biennale 2012 provides a look at an unfinished concert hall.

The suspended installation is by a renowned architectural firm established in Basel, Switzerland. Their celebrated work is now part of the 2012 major architectural exhibition, the Venice Biennale. For its exhibit Herzog & de Meuron chose to install suspended forms carved to depict the unfinished Elbphilharmonie concert hall. These are made from large blocks of foam.

Spectators can view each model that creates a sort of cocoon effect around the spectator to feel the full effect of the unfinished concert hall. The installations are meant to be an ode to an architectural gem that has not seen its glory due to contract, social and political difficulties.
