This also made her the only music hall in Europe that was illuminated by natural light during the day, allowing the sun to participate in the music. The large glass curtain wall around the concert hall brings ample light to the concert hall. The beautiful pattern on the curtain wall echoes the glass dome, making the whole hall like a beautiful kaleidoscope. The building is full of rich details, and the natural elements of plants and flowers are everywhere. On the double-column gallery, the hand-made mosaic "Baihua Forest" is full of colors. The red and white rose that was "embroidered" on the ceiling decorated the concert hall into a sea of roses, and the wavy ceiling conveyed the sound waves to each seat.

Domenech puts the beauty of nature in this box that makes wonderful music, so that the eyes and ears of the audience are bathed in poetry. Dream world.
