* Architecture: El B – Auditorium in Cartagena by Selgascano


Architecture: El B – Auditorium in Cartagena by Selgascano: “..the translucent exterior of the linear volume stretches 210 meters and projects the orthogonal edges found in the man-made environment. as visitors enter the interior, a delicate and light space is presented, evoking a soft aquatic ambiance that is decidedly missing from outside the building’s walls. aluminum and plastic manufactured from a single extruded section are placed in diverse ways and tinted with pigments to appear as different elements. set parallel to the pier’s edge, the horizontality of the low-profile facade accentuates the structures length, with a roof terrace offering panoramic and unobstructed views to the sea..”  Luminous, superb interior.  Wonderful photos, especially of the interior spaces, by the excellent architectural photographer Iwan Baan..
