Chapel of Sound by Open Architecture

Published Jul 24, 2023

The Chapel of Sound is a fascinating project by Open Architecture, nestled in a mountainous valley near Chengde, a historic town northeast of Beijing, China. This open-air concert hall is a monolithic structure, shaped like a boulder and sitting in a rocky valley at the foot of Jinshanling Great Wall on Beijing’s northern border.

The structure is designed to evoke its natural surroundings, pursuing the experience of sound in its purest form, collecting, and reflecting it throughout the space. Inside this rocky outcropping, there is a semi-outdoor amphitheater, an outdoor stage, viewing platforms, and supporting spaces.

The Chapel of Sound was designed to resemble a natural rock formation, echoing the surrounding rocky terrain with its rippling concrete form. Overlooking the Great Wall of China, this sculptural concert hall offers a unique and immersive acoustic experience.
