London's Royal Festival Hall has never looked—or sounded—better. The home of the London Philharmonic, built in 1951 for the Festival of Britain, has reopened June of 2007 after a two-year, $184 million overhaul that's part of the revitalization of the Southbank Centre, which also includes Queen Elizabeth Hall. British architects Allies and Morrison re-created the original carpet patterns, uncovered the 1950's Bauhaus-inspired paint scheme, and added sleek new glass elevators. American acousticians Kirkegaard Associates enriched the hall's dry acoustics, which should now do justice to the world's leading orchestras.
