Silver birds flutter across the dazzling metal facade of Paris' futuristic Philharmonic, a striking piece of contemporary architecture designed by Jean Nouvel, unveiled in 2015 within the Cité de la Musique – Philharmonie de Paris complex. Home to the Orchestre de Paris, the concert hall enjoys remarkable acoustics in an auditorium of ‘terrace’ seats surrounding the orchestra. From its 6th-floor restaurant, Le Balcon, and terrace, there's a sweeping panorama of Parc de la Villette.
