Grimaldi Forum, a setting of 70,000m² of concrete, glass and steel. Grimaldi is the family name of Monaco’s ruling Prince Albert II
Its 1,800-seat auditorium with a 10,925 sq. ft. stage and a balcony for 500 is used for ballet and opera performances, as well as meetings, and has become a new center of culture for the Principality. Two other auditoriums seat 800 and 400. There are 23 breakout rooms for 10 to 400 and 2 large exhibition halls with various stage possibilities. The larger one (45,200 sq. ft.) is pillar-free, with a 23-ft. ceiling and space for up to 200 trade show booths; the other, designed for art exhibitions and galas, can hold 155 booths (and they can be joined). Advanced technology provides external networking access through relay satellite, Internet or interactive terminal.
With over 2,200 first-class and deluxe hotel rooms, central location and temperate climate, Monaco is an ideal destination all year round. Monaco’s easy accessibility from many international airports (14 miles from Nice International) makes global gatherings a cinch and its privacy and security give it preference over other potential sites.

Interesting capture of this piece of futuristic architecture. Good point of view taking advantage of the lead-line offered by the wooden walkway. Very good clarity.

I dont quite remember this building, but nevertheless, a good image, well composed, with a fine point of view, with an interesting architectural subject.

The design of the building is very unusual. You composed the image well using the walkway as lead-in. The three people wlaking towards you are an important detail.

The wooden bridge is a good starting point leading the viewer to the glass auditorium with behind the dominating hills. Light and colors are great too!

An interesting architecture well valued for your setting. The sheens and reflections in its surface of glass have a nice graphical effect and do the composition very attractive at sight.
Good perspective and quality of image.

Modern steel/glass feature of architecture set against the mountain background to make this tiny State of Monaco looking more like a city.
Interesting to see this tourist attraction.

The point of view takes us toward the auditorium. The diagonal line of the ramp is an asset to the composition. The presence of people has an effect of scale. The image is clear and precise. The colors ar enhanced by the luminosity. Have a nice day.
