The Auditorio Nacional is one of the most iconic concert halls in Mexico City. It was built by the architects Teodoro González de León y Abraham Zabludovsky. It’s a stunning building but I won’t talk about it. I mean I will talk about a specific side, my favorite part of the building: the staircase. It’s a large full concrete stairway with a panoramic view of Paseo de la Reforma and the beautiful Polanco neighborhood. Downstairs there is Tres figuras áureas, an interesting three-piece contemporary steel sculpture by González de León. This sculpture was based on the idea of a rock carved by the sea. The perspective and proportions give you some things to think about.

It’s a really nice place to sit down, take a break and enjoy the sunset. It’s also a good reference and a nice meeting point to figure out what’s the next spot. I once met the Irish folk artist Damien Rice there smoking before his concert and we spoke for a while. Maybe somebody else can meet someone there.
