Palace of music and congresses

Vitoria-Gasteiz / Finalist in public competition / 61.267 m2 / 2008 / Colaboration with Féliz Arranz.

We propose the auditoriums as independent constructions, giving the citizen an easy interpretation of the built object, an objective aimed from our convinction of the fact that the architectures with identity bring meaning to the city.

The reflective, translucent and white glass facade reflects natural light, dawns and sunsets smoothly. At nightfall the building skin appears homogeneously illuminated from the inside, allowing by low-consumption led technology innumerable variants in its appearance.

The skylights that light up the lobbies in the palace heart are crowned with vertical elements that besides completing the identity of the building, are linked to bioclimatic and efficiency approaches and to energy gains of the building.
