Councillors vote 6-4 in favour of city’s first concert hall for 100 years
David Chipperfield’s concert hall for Edinburgh has been approved after a nail-biting five-hour debate.
Councillors voted 6-4 in favour of the World Heritage Sites cheme after hearing from supporters and opponents – and the architect himself, who was asked to defend the use of concrete rather than stone for the facades.
The £45m Dunard Centre – previously known as the Impact Centre – will be the city’s first dedicated new space for music and the performing arts in more than a century.
