Auditorium and Music Center

Raphael Moneo

Although the building is defined as a single rectangular volume clad with Cor-Ten steel panels inserted into a reinforced concrete skeletal frame, it actually houses several concert halls, each of them named after a Catalan musician: the symphony hall, the Sala Pau Casals, seating 2,340 people; the Sala Oriol Martorell, seating 600, and the Sala Tete Montoliu, seating 400, as well as the newly opened Sala 4 Alicia de Larrocha, with 152 seats. The building also includes a musical school, rehearsal halls, library, recording studios, workshops, offices and storage.
In the center of the building, a shared foyer provides entry from both sides
