Auditorio Insular de los Llanos de Aridane

Competition for Los Llanos Auditorium 1st place, 2006

The Auditorium rises as a broken petrous rock embedded in the ground and embraced by the landslide from Taburiente’s crater (an important natural park in the Canary Islands). The fundamental program consists of 5 pieces emerging from the ground, while in the landslide that embraces it, the activities and complementary services, as well as the Stars Library are placed”. The Auditorium is hidden by the local vegetation which not only surrounds the facility, but even goes through it with cracks between modules to the interior.
