CLUE: Considered one of the great symphonic halls of the modern era, its architect is credited with originating acoustically immersive vineyard-style seating.

The answer to the September issue’s Guess the Architect is HANS SCHAROUN. His design for the Chamber Music Hall (1987) was carried out by Edgar Wisniewski, after Scharoun’s death. The more intimate hall is next to Scharoun’s earlier Berliner Philharmonie (1963) in Berlin’s Kulturforum.

WINNER: Joseph Molek, architect, Stieglitz Snyder Architecture, Buffalo, New York
