Katowice music academy

Katowice, Poland



Room for almost 500 guests, state-of-the-art construction technology and unique acoustic properties: Katowice music academy's new concert hall meets all the demands made on an international venue.

The music academy, founded in 1929 as the national music conservatory and named after the Polish composer Karol Szymanowski, is regarded as one of the best schools of the arts in eastern Europe. It offers a range of courses in composition, interpretation, music teaching and jazz, as well as singing and instrumental studies.

The music academy building, with its neo-gothic style, is predominantly characterised by its impressive brick façade, which also formed the basis for the design of the concert hall. The modern and clearly structured new-build adjacent to the main building is perfectly adapted in shape and façade design to the existing architecture.

JORDAHL GmbH provided JORDAHL® JDA punching shear reinforcement and JORDAHL® JVA facing brackets to support the brick façade of the new concert hall.
