Beautiful Architecture

This concert hall makes me want to pay a visit to
Mexico. Inspired by the movement of a conductor’s
baton, Broissin Architects designed the beautiful
Roberto Cantoral Cultural Center in Mexico.
The design is composed of five concrete roofs moving
up and down in harmony to give shape, space and light
to the project. Each roof represents a musical staff´s line,
always straight, constant and parallel.  The project
is sited in a forest area with huge and old trees.

The lines composing the façade move up and down as
branches move in the wind, letting the sunlight pass
through, creating a fantastical parade of shadows.
The building wraps you, 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. Outside, the white concrete façade
represents the purity and originality of Mexican music;
inside, the red concert hall represents the Mexican
composers’ passion. Beautiful.
