The Auditorio de la Diputación de Alicante, ADDA, is a flagship project of modern architecture, located in the centre of the Alicante capital, in the Paseo de Campoamor. The sophisticated design of the building is capable of welcoming important musical and artistic events in all their stylish diversity, as well as different events and varied audiences by holding congresses, conferences and receptions.
The own personality of the Auditorium makes it a special framework for inspiration, including in a natural way all the events programmed, producing social, cultural, educational and also entertaining synergies by means of music and the different artistic expressions that meet together. Its 28,580 square metres of open architecture receives a capacity for 5,000 people simultaneously in its different spaces.
The external finish of limestone over a black granite base and the whiteness of the lattice of its façade protects the interior of the building from sun rays achieving a singular balance.
