Broissin Architects intervention at the Centro Cultural Roberto Cantoral invites us to reflect, to feel the harmony and discover the wonderful and magic world of music and art. Inspired by the movement of a conductor´s baton, the building design is comprised by five concrete roofs moving up and down in harmony to give shape, space and light to the whole project. Each roof represents a musical staff´s line, always straight, constant and parallel. The lines composing the façade move up and down as branches move in the wind, letting the sunlight pass through, creating a fantastic parade of shadows. Step by step, the visitor discovers the project as he walks through the access square with a relaxed mind, just observing everything around him, feeling how the concert hall is much more than just steel and concrete. The building wraps one’s body and soul, its shape turns into the shape of music. It is not a whim or about fashion, it is just about the sound of music traveling around every space, every seat, every corner, giving shape to every dream, to every song…
