“Un anillo totalmente enterrado y un cubo de hormigón que emerge sobre él”.

The new ‘Vegas Altas’ Auditorium and Convention Centre in Villanueva de la Serena has been designed as a completely buried ring. Only a large cube containing the stage area of
the main auditorium, the rehearsal rooms and a cafe upstairs, emerges above ground. The box of the auditorium, an 18 m side cube, consists of reinforced concrete walls with different
perforations in all its sides. The different levels are supported by steel beams.
