10 short films

PLANE—SITE is pleased to release a set of 10 short films, produced on behalf of the Pierre Boulez Saal, charting the storied history and bright future of this remarkable new music venue in Berlin.

Pierre Boulez Saal is an architecturally distinct and conceptually visionary concert hall investing intellectually, pedagogically and artistically in music creation and its public impact. The Saal represents the public face of the Barenboim-Said Akademie, founded by Daniel Baremboim in 2012. Designed by the renowned American architect Frank Gehry, space and music within the concert hall engage in a unique artistic vision. The Saal is the second masterpiece in Berlin that Gehry constructed inside an already existing building. The unique circular set-up required distinct expertise on the room’s acoustics, provided by the leading expert Yasuhisa Toyota.

A FLEXIBLE STAGE FLOOR INVENTED BY LUCIANO DAMIANI

One therefore sees perpetual scenographic inventions proliferate, extraordinary prototypes that would often represent by themselves the fulfilment of dreams that the scenographer has harboured right throughout history, but only twentieth-century technology has enabled him to make possible. One of these inventions is undoubtedly the so-called “flexible stage floor” invented by the scenographer, Luciano Damiani.
