The new auditorium for the Barcelona Auditorium Consortium sits near the edge of Barcelona’s nineteenth-century grid and is part of the Plaça de les Glòries. Moneo created the building to be an isolated, self-sufficient building containing two concert halls, a museum of music, and a library of musical studies. All these program elements are within a concrete grid, stainless steel panel in-filled longitudinal structure. Inside this apparently solid volume is a giant void that provides public space and is the center of the building’s life. L’Auditori has become a focus of musical life in Barcelona since its completion.
