La Llotja Theatre and Conference Centre by Mecanoo Architecten, Ileida, Spain

Regarded from the large scale of the region, the building forms a link between the river and the mountain. Viewed from the urban scale, La Llotja and the river form a balanced composition. At street level the cantilevers of La Llotja de Lleidatheater and conference centre provide protection from sun and rain.

Dutch architects Mecanoo have designed this  stone-clad theatre and congress centre in Ileida, Spain. Called La Llotja de Lleida, the building has a band of glazing at its widest point and a roof garden planted with creeping plants.

The mountain with the historical cathedral Seu Vella and the Segre river mark the high and low points of the mountainous landscape in which Lleida lies, after Barcelona the second city of Catalonia. On the banks of the Segre, somewhat outside the centre of the city, is coming La Llotja, a large conference centre with a theatre. Mecanoo has interpreted the landscape of Lleida as an exciting decor before which the building has been set down somewhat away from the river. The mise-en-scène is elaborated on three levels of scale. Regarded at the large scale of the region, the building represents a connecting link between the river and the mountain. Viewed at the level of the city, La Llotja and the river forms a balanced composition. At street level the cantilevers of the La Llotja de Lleida conference centre provide protection from sun and rain. More information, please click here..
