Posted by the editors on Thursday, 26 July 2012

Architecture: Auditorium in the Church of Saint Francis’ Convent by David Closes: “..Jagged glazed stairwells climb the stone walls of this eighteenth century church in Catalonia that architect David Closes has converted into an auditorium..The church is all that remains of a Franciscan convent that spent over 150 years in ruin in the town of Santpedor..The external staircases wind up from the entrance through the walls of the building, overlooking the auditorium in the former nave..Two mezzanine floors are located in the wings of the church and will later become a historical archive..”  Sharp contemporary additions to an 18th century former convent; steel, glass, stone, concrete..
