Concert in the Auditório Ibirapuera

The Ibirapuera Auditorium ( Portuguese : Auditório Ibirapuera ) is a concert hall designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the Parque do Ibirapuera in São Paulo ( Brazil ). The construction, completed in 2005, completes a group of buildings in Ibirapuera Park that the architect designed in the 1950s.

Architectural concept

The building has a spatial simplicity; It consists of a single block, which has the shape of a trapezoid in plan view and that of a triangle in longitudinal section . Like the other buildings in the park and a large part of Niemeyer's works, the auditorium is constructed of concrete painted white . The project started in 2002 and was completed in 2005. The built-up area is 7000 m 2 . There is space for 800 people in the visitor room.

Its unique shape and room layout distinguish it from other concert halls, which mostly follow the design of the Opéra Garnier in the 19th century. It is divided into three parts, which follow one another from the outside in: the foyer , the space for the audience and the stage .

The group that forms the auditorium together with the Oca consists of two buildings made of pure and white geometric bodies and is considered to be the most important feature in the project from an architectural point of view. A square , a tent and a footbridge were supposed to complete the group, but were not realized.

A canopy made of red painted metal covers the main entrance and gives the building its identity, which characterizes it and distinguishes it from the other buildings. For this reason, the shape and color of the element form the brand of the auditorium and act as an architectural logo . It is officially called Labareda , after the Portuguese word for flame .

Internal division

The foyer on the first floor leads to the stage and auditorium. In the basement there is a bar, administration rooms, the music school and cloakrooms. The building has a 20 meter wide rear gate which, when open, makes the events on the stage visible to visitors to the park.
