Located above the beaches on the south coast of the island, the building emerges from excavations in the rock.

Menis describes the design, which won a competition for the project last year,  as "a piece which recalls a broken rock, coming away from earth."

Here's some text from Menis Arquitectos:

Auditorium and Congress Center in Morro Jable
Pájara. Fuerteventura

Located in a privileged position, above the beaches at South Fuerteventura, the building emerges through the excavation and the mimesis with the site. Textures, colours and finishes answer to this aim, creating a piece which recalls a broken rock, coming away from earth.

It is a sponge building, able to adapt to different situations and events, flexible, equipped with well balanced acoustics also prepared for different types of events, designed for low energy and maintaining costs.
