Sol y Cielo

DPP_1074v3

The Palau de la Música Catalana is a modernisme concert hall in Barcelona designed by Lluís Domènech (the guides took great pains to inform us that Barcelona was not built by Gaudi alone). Its main auditorium, an architectural tribute to choral music, is a bright and intricately decorated hall which seats over 2000 people. Above it all is a magnificent stained-glass skylight designed to resemble an inverted dome. Shades of cyan and azure radiate out from a center of gold and auburn, invoking sun (sol), sky (cielo), and the joyfulness of it all.
