Danish Radio (Danish Broadcasting Corporation) decided to build a new concert hall when Danish Radio moved its headquarters and all other facilities to a new campus. The concert hall was built as a part of their new home. The new hall has audience seating for approximately 1,800 persons and has been designed as a concert hall for classical music. The Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra is the resident orchestra of the new hall.
The competition for the design team (architect-acoustician) for the new concert hall was conducted by the client, Danish Radio, from the end of 2001 to the beginning of 2002. The team of French architectural firm Ateliers Jean Nouvel, with Nagata Acoustics as the acoustical consultant, was chosen.
