L’aquila Temporary Concert Hall opened on May 7th. The opening ceremony was held with the orchestra conducted by Tomomi Nishimoto. In July 2009, the G8 Summit was held in the city of L’Aquila, Italy, since the L’Aquila earthquake occurred on April 6th the same year . Here the Japanese government announced to build a temporary concert hall which proposed by Shigeru Ban to support reconstruction of the city, famous for its music scene. The aim was to construct a paper concert hall which is easy to assemble and durable, for an early resumption of musical activities in the city. [IT] L’opera presenta in pianta una geometria quadrata con il lato di 25 metri. All’interno un’ellisse disposta diagonalmente ospiterà la sala principale da 230 posti. La copertura sarà a piramide ribassata. Anche per questo progetto Ban ha immaginato tubi in cartone precompresso per sorreggere la copertura. Sacchetti di sabbia riempiranno la scaffalatura metallica che disegna la struttura della sala per l’insonorizzazione dello spazio. Tutte le strutture saranno smontabili e rimontabili altrove.
