TT5 - Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall

Abstract:
Visit the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall, home of the San Francisco Symphony. This is the world-class concert hall component of the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center. It was built in 1980 to give the San Francisco Symphony a permanent home and was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Pietro Belluschi, along with acoustical consultants Bolt, Beranek and Newman. Its modern design is visually elegant both inside and out. Acoustical renovations under the direction of Kirkegaard Associates were completed in 1992, resulting in substantial improvements not only to the acoustics but also to the hall’s beauty. This tour will demonstrate and discuss the technical aspects of
the hall's acoustical design.

Technical Tours are made available on a first come, first served basis. Tickets can be purchased during normal registration hours at the convention center.
