Space Age Arts Centre
Amongst other things today, I went to check out a new, as yet incomplete, arts centre, PALCCO, being built in Zapopan in the the north-west of the city. It's designed by Arnoldo Rabago who studied at the AA in London, then worked for Zaha Hadid before returning to Guadalajara. He probably wouldn't thank me for this, but you can tell the ZH influence. Anyway, It's an amazing building with a 2,500-seat theatre/concert hall, a large semi-outdoor amphitheatre, smaller performance spaces, a Museum of Communication, restaurants etc. We're hoping to provide them with its opening show in July of which more anon.
