Palau Sant Jordi

Palau Sant Jordi (89B)

The Palau Sant Jordi is a covered, multi-functional stadium, considered the jewel of what is known as the “Olympic Ring” of Montjuïc.

It was designed by the Japanese architect, Arata Isozaki, and is considered a masterpiece of architecture and modern engineering. Its construction began in 1985 and it was completed in 1990. Its structure and mechanised materials give it great flexibility, which means that it can be adapted to put on the most varied events: it can become an athletics track, a ballet stage or an ice-rink.

It holds 17,000 people. It regularly hosts all kinds of sporting events and is one of Barcelona’s most sought-after sites for music and theatre shows, because of its large capacity, comfort and its excellent acoustics.

The roof, a huge concave metal frame sustaining glazed ceramic tiles and zinc sheets, designed by another Japanese, Mamoru Kawaguchi, is an extraordinary piece of engineering.

The esplanade is adorned with the sculpture “Change” by Aiko Miyawaki, the wife of Arata Isozaki.
