Photo: Barcelona's ornate Palau de la Música Catalana does not require additional, artificial lighting during daylight hours. Sunlight pours through the colorful skylight (which weighs about a metric ton and is built directly over the stage to properly illuminate daytime concerts.) Stained-glass windows also surround the 2,200-seat hall, further eliminating the need for electric lighting (although lighting is available for night time concerts). Completed in 1908 by Domènech i Montaner, the Modernist hall was constructed to resemble a Gothic cathedral to lend a sacred touch to the space, which is used mainly to stage concerts of choral music.
