The Auditorio de Tenerife can be classified as late-modern architecture from the end of the twentieth century. According to Calatrava, the forms originate from a free gesture of marked expressive intent, which coaxes the artistic nature of activities in the interior to transcend towards the exterior. Diagrammatically speaking, the building is composed of a succession of platforms, overshadowed by the enormous curved volume of the Main Hall. This is the heart of the building, both formally and structurally. The 50 meter high overhanging roof gives the impression of animal-like movement and flexibility. The offices and rooms of the Auditorio, and the annexed buildings located beneath the platforms that surround the building, ensure that this multi-purpose centre can accommodate a considerably varied cultural offer.
