Pic of the Week: December 2

Pic of the Week Dec 02 2015

William Burnet Tuthill, Carnegie Hall’s architect, designed the main auditorium to have the finest acoustics possible. The entire ceiling is divided into four sections rather than one continuous cavernous vault. The main portion of the ceiling, as you see above, is 83 feet from the Parquet floor and is vital to the Hall’s acoustics. 

The image of the ceiling above was captured as a gigapixel image—composed of one billion pixels—as part of Carnegie Hall’s partnership with Google Cultural Institute. Explore the image to find the winged cherubims, see all 128 lamps, the hundreds of discreetly placed open slots for the passage of air, and more.
