    A WAVE IN THE CANARY ISLANDS

    It was originally intended to be a simple concert hall, but when the multifunction building opens this September, it will also be a landmark for the town of Santa Cruz, Tenerife, in the Canary Islands. The renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava designed the steel and white concrete structure with an overhanging “wave" and a skin of white ceramic tiles. Next week ArchitectureWeek contributing editor Lili Eylon will explain how the unusual structure was built.

Monkeys climb the interior arches; flowers grace exterior columns. Next week Colin Cunningham will explain the cultural and architectural value of some recently published pencil drawings of the architect/ naturalist.
