Like the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, the JS Bach Chamber Music Hall by Zaha Hadid is a twisting, mathematic display of carefully calculated rhythms. Designed to host the Baroque composer’s music, this installation at the Manchester Art Gallery was the pearl of the Manchester International Festival, a celebration of one of history’s most important musical forces. The theater was composed of a translucent, acrylic membrane folded over a steel frame that encircles the perimeter of the stage and its audience. The result is awesome. [ZahaHadid via Dezeen]
