Rock Hall at Temple University

Rock Hall at Temple University
Acoustics, Sound System

Project Description

Despite the College of Music’s 30-year history and its burgeoning national reputation as a preeminent school for performers, Temple University did not have a hall designed specifically for musical performances until the recent completion of Rock Hall. Originally built as a facility for religious education, the building was renovated into a music building containing a performance hall, practice rooms, a music library, computer labs, faculty studios, and is now home to The New School Institute.

A dominant feature of the new 325-seat performance hall is the ingenious wooden basket-weave element suspended within the proscenium. This unusual enclosure is designed to both reflect sound and allow sound to pass into the space alongside and above to produce a beautifully-enhanced sound quality.
