Herzog & de Meuron

The newest Herzog & de Meuron building in Spain is the Espacio de las Artes at Santa Cruz, Tenerife. The building is a long volume intersected by a ramp that generates a triangular plaza. Along the facade, over 1,200 openings in 720 different shapes filter the natural light to the inside, while generating an amazing view during night.
With over 20,622 sqm, the building includes a public library, a contemporary art museum, photography centre, store, cafe/restaurant and several public use spaces for the community.
