The Multifunctional Concert Hall “Jordanki” is not the first daring form in an architectural building constructed by Acciona Infraestructuras, the co-constructor. In 2005 this Spanish company carried out another architectural vision of architect Fernando Menis and built the “Magma” Art and Congress Center in Adeje (Tenerife). What is more, the company build also the Opera House – Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia in Valencia, which was designed by Santiago Caltrava. Both mentioned buildings are famous for their modern form and innovative architectural solutions.
The project of the Multifunctional Concert Hall “Jordanki” was rewarded in autumn 2010 at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona as the best cultural future project. The main architect – Fernando Menis – drew the inspiration from historical heritage and medieval architecture of Toruń. The project of the New Concert Hall exemplifies the fusion between old and new, which is achieved mostly through the materials that are going to be used for its construction. For the interior, bricks are going to be used as a reminder of the medieval façades of buildings in the Old Town. For the exterior, very clear almost white concrete is going to be used and in some place it is “broken” by some cracks which reveal the interior coating.
