Auditorio Nacional

Auditorio Nacional, located in Mexico City’s Chapultepec Park, is home to several of the city’s major cultural institutions and presents a wide variety of popular entertainment.

At the request of the Government of Mexico, the city’s auditorium was totally renovated and reconfigured as a more contemporary venue for a wide range of performances.

The original auditorium, built in the late 1940’s, was a large, curved, poured-concrete structure with exposed structural trusses. In cooperation with one of Mexico’s leading architectural firms, FDA reconfigured the space and reduced the seating from 13,000 to 10,000, dramatically improving the sightlines. Outdated stage and lighting equipment was replaced with state-of-the-art systems to better fit the requirements of a broader spectrum of performing arts events, from popular entertainers to Grand Opera.
