The Municipal Theatre, situated in the centre of Torrevieja, is costing over 8 million-euros to construct and is due for completion in May. It has been designed by award winning Alejandro Zaera. The architect, who was born in Madrid, has designed projects such as the Yokohama International Port Terminal and the forthcoming BBC Music Centre in London and he was a finalist in the Ground Zero competition to redesign New York’s Twin Towers following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.


Torrevieja Municipal Theater and Auditorium Torrevieja is one of the main tourist towns in south-east Spain, and is now involved in an ambitious program of infrastructural improvements aimed at raising the profile of the town beyond its current mass tourist destination. This commission is to implement one of these new urban infrastructures, a 650-seat theatre and auditorium in a corner site inside one of the town centre blocks, and the redevelopment of a neighbouring existing plaza. Given the scarce amount of space in the plot in respect to the required program, our proposal is to lift the auditorium from the ground level, letting the plaza penetrate the plot, becoming a foyer that sits underneath the cantilevered mass of the building. The public space becomes an incision into a solid mass, clad in local limestone, that completes the volume of the block’s corner. The auditorium is proposed to entirely fill the available plan, and to become a single black box with the scenic tower, in order to allow for the maximum flexibility of use of the theatre. The geometry of the auditorium is exploited as a feature of the cantilevered, carved mass. Foreign Office Architects, London

ROOM ACOUSTIC DESIGN The aim of the room acoustic treatment is to get a reverberation time suitable compromise between music and speech, and to achieve an even distribution of sound energy into the listening area. The variation of the reverberation time for each use, is to be achieved mainly with the volume change introduced by incorporating scene shell into the room. As the capacity of the room is 662 viewers and 100 musicians, distributed in a single plane seats and that the volume of the room is 4.238 m3 and the volume of the scene shell is 1.450 m3, we get obtained the two following hypotheses: -Hypothesis 1: Auditorium. Volume: 6.688m3 (4.238+1450). 7’46m3/viewer -Hypothesis 2: Theater. Volume: 4.238 m3. 6.40 m3/viewer
