01Description

This theatre is the beacon of an urban redevelopment which includes a new metro/tram/bus hub and a shopping mall. Built into the steep slope down to the lake, the lower part is organized into: - technical/backstage areas and logistics on the north side, - ticket office, foyer and a restaurant on the south side, which opens onto a broad esplanade. Passive heating and cooling of the auditorium is provided by a solar system. At night, the high-energy-efficiency block is transformed, lighting up the night sky as if energising the town with rays of new culture.
