La Concha Acustica - Historical Building Managua - Nicaragua

Just four years old, La Concha Acustica Taiwan has started to succumb to the same lack of maintenance that seems to plague all of the Managua monuments. Doubtless artist Glen Howard would be dismayed to see the cracks and stains that have started to appear on his work, erected in 2004.


The Acoustic Shell, which looks like a huge white wave surging up from Lake Managua to crash on shore, is still used as a staging area for concerts and cultural events, at least according to locals, who couldn’t remember the last time one took place. The stark white beauty of the shell is also slightly overshadowed by the mammoth pink FSLN billboards, which have sprouted nearby, along with a sea of national and political flags. For a night of culture, Managua-style, a better bet is the grand Teatro Nacional Rubén Darío, located just to the south.
