Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra’s CaixaForum Sevilla opens

 
After two years of construction work and 20 million euros invested, the eighth CaixaForum cultural center opened in the Andalusian capital, on La Cartuja Island, at the feet of César Pelli´s Torre Sevilla. A work of the Sevillian architect Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra, with its 7,500 square meters it is the third largest CaixaForum, after Madrid’s and Barcelona’s. It has two exhibition galleries, an auditorium that seats 275, two multipurpose halls, workshops, a café, and a bookstore. The project involved adapting an existing structure – the Pódium building, which is part of the Torre Sevilla – and the creation of a plaza – covered by an aluminum-clad canopy – underneath which is the main entrance, with a skylight to let daylight into the underground levels.
