PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Dinner: Mirador del Palau

The welcoming dinner of the Euroconstruct Barcelona Conference 2016 will take place at the restaurant El mirador del Palau de la Música on Thursday November 24th at 20.00.

The Palau de la Música Catalana is a modernist and symbolic building for Barcelona. The only modernist concert hall declared World Heritage Site since 1997. The construction of this music hall took place between the years 1905 and 1908, designed by one of the most important architects of Catalan modernism, Lluís Domenech i Montaner. The construction is the headquarters of the Orfeó Català, a pioneer choir in Catalan music, and was financed by financiers and industrialists of the time. Artists such as Pau Casals, Richard Strauss or Ígor Stravinsky, have performed in the Palau de la Música. Nowadays, the Palau de la Música symbolises the cultural life of the city.

During the 80’s, architects Òscar Tusquets and Lluís Clotet were requested to renovate the building. The first renovation took 7 years and consisted of the restoration of the hall and entrance, and the construction of an annexed building where the library, dressing rooms and the archives are located. The project obtained the FAD 1989 Award on Architecture and Renovation. The second part of the renovation started in 2000, when internal remodellings where made, along with the demolition of the Sant Francesc de Paula church, which was burn down during the civil war and allowed the expansion of the building. The restaurant El Mirador del Palau is part of the latest renovation, also by Òscar Tusquets.
