Concert Hall Architecture
Calatrava. Auditorio de Tenerife, Tenerife, Spain. The distinctive concrete shell roof takes its inspiration directly from the landscape of Tenerife set against the Atlantic Ocean. The massive arc swooping up and over the building like a wave takes on a symbolic power, serving not only the building that houses a modern 1558 seat auditorium for music and culture but also as a focal point for the islands.
