Auditorium and Conference Centre was erected as an icon building for the consolidation of Castellon as a progressive city with projection in the social and cultural fields. The building promotes an urban area in expansion, joining together the orbital road, the surroundings of the Lidon Hermitage and the growing city. Together with the big park surrounding it, it contributes to creating a homogenous city in its growth. The Auditorium maintains a close relationship with the park, reminiscence of the Mediterranean: sand dune, orange trees, stretches of water and land, taking us toward the building that receives us with its great outsider atrium, allowing a smooth transit into the inside. A sloped platform comes out of the building to welcome us, having a reception hall before actually entering inside. The rest of the building connects with the park by means of an area like a depressed patio, with a clear historical reference to spatial references. The process to give a solution to the functioning of such an extensive programme as that of the Auditorium and Conference Centre, is based on the consideration of the various areas as independent Systems interconnected by a continuous space backed up by the Light.
