The Helmut List Halle is a masterpiece of modern architecture, built on the steel constructions of a 20th century former industrial hall.
The hall was named after Prof. Dr. h.c. Helmut List who financed the construction of the hall and is chairman and CEO of AVL List GmbH, an internationally renowned company in the engine and automotive sector located in Graz.
For acoustic reasons, the building itself has several skins. Conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt was integrated in the planning of the hall and insisted on the use of materials such as filled wooden elements, wooden panels and textile fabrics for the interior design of the hall.
Thanks to the AVL List company’s vast experience in acoustic research, the hall has become an ideal venue for performances and recordings of classical and contemporary music.
Did you know, that Markus Pernthaler, the architect of the hall, set the building on a layer of rubber tiles? He had this idea to isolate the hall from the noisy surroundings of the nearby freight depot.
