Modern Architecture in Canary Islands
This souvenir from Spain shows a lovely representation of contemporary art in the form of the architecture of an auditorium. It is fitting in this sense as it is situated in the Canary capital of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and has become a symbol for the city. As a matter of fact, it is considered to be one of the most emblematic works of Spanish architecture.
As for the perspective chosen by the photographer, it couldn't be more ideal or welcoming. The foreground is the walkway that leads to the building and is accompanied by a flower adorned curb. Another beautiful thing about the photograph is the backdrop of the sky. It is split by cloud and sky which compliments the whiteness of the structure. The play on shadow is another admirable thing about this picture as you can sense what the architect had in mind, and what he or she wanted the public to see, or note.
An Architecture Hard to Rival
This impressive work of architecture took six years to be completed. By far, the auditorium is the most sophisticated building in Canary islands and has become a symbol of modern Spanish architecture. When it was inaugurated, even the Prince of Asturias, Felipe de Borbon attended the event. Its importance in the doings of the Modern world prompted the visit by President Clinton and its inclusion in an exclusive print of post stamps featuring Spanish most relevant building designs.
If visiting Santa Cruz de Tenerife, you can't miss a performance by the Orquesta Sinfonica de Tenerife or Tenerife Danza at this auditorium which definitely contributes rounding the artistic experience of music and dance. This travel souvenir will remind you of the great shows you attended in Canary Islands when you are back home.
