The natural and built landscape in Lleida, Spain, is the starting point for Mecanoo architecten of Holland’s theatre and conference centre.



La Llotja Theatre and Conference Centre The building designed by Mecanoo architecten of Holland is a monolithic construction just outside the city. According to the architects, the whole complex, considered on the scale of the landscape, is designed to provide a visual link between the river and the mountain, while on the urban scale the theatre and the river form a balanced complex. The project is developed on three levels: a big roof garden from which to enjoy views of the surrounding landscape, a central strip corresponding to the space for the events, which is clearly revealed on the façade by a jutting panoramic window at street level and an underground parking lot. A monumental staircase links different levels inside the structure. The theatre is like an orchard, with dark wooden walls in which tree-shaped lights are cut out, a design intended to pay homage to Spain’s Lleida region, famous for its fruit.
