Auditorium of León

Luis M Mansilla y Emilio Tuñón, arquitectos


The auditorium of León presents itself to the city like a living being whose face is decidedly oriented towards the Hostal de San Marcos. Its façade-face, like a white stack of profoundly flared windows, weaves a distant canonical scale, with an irregular structure of openings that arises from the interior needs of the building; in this way, almost like a Plateresque echo of the fabric of the nearby Hospital, the auditorium shows itself on the urban scene like a forceful cut and perforated membrane that permits a minute and fragmented reading of the general façade plane.
