Auditorio de Tenerife
The Auditorio de Tenerife (Tenerife Auditorium) is an arts venue on the seafront in the southern part of Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
The concrete building is characterised by its dramatic arch roof which sweeps up from the base to a height of 58 m and curves over the main auditorium like a crashing wave. Being supported by only two points with the narrowed tip appearing to be suspended, it was the first arch of its kind in the world.
The precast concrete ribbed roof of the main auditorium is constructed from two intersecting cone segments. An approximately 15-degree wedge is missing from the centre, providing the two segments with the appearance of a pronounced ridge.
