Programme: Auditorium for music and opera 1.800 seats, chamber music hall 400 seats, musical library, restaurant
Client: Consorcio para el Auditorio de Música de Málaga
The Auditorium emerges on the sea front of Malagas port as a clear spatial organisation. A cluster of cubic volumes with different heights, textures and brightness overlook all directions.
A system of modular pieces of 21x 21 m., the same size as the stage, builds up the programme of this building designed for music. The building is conceived as a landscape for people in which inner and outer spaces imply a continual transition between them.
From these public spaces that articulate the built volumes, there are views towards the sea and the new port. The loggia at the entrance is conceived as a filter crossed by wind that gives way to the main hall, the restaurant and the musical library.
The main hall for 1800 seats with a lens shaped plan is placed as an autonomous piece on the grid and allows both symphonic music and opera.
Floor area: 35.150 sq
