Before the appearance and the diffusion of cinemas and of mass media the Hakawati was the main form of entertainment in Arabic-speaking countries and most notably in Lebanon. The Hakawati was a storyteller who thrilled his audience with a story. He was the spontaneous messenger moving throughout the city, a key-figure in stimulating social cohesion and in activating a public space for all.

The project is based on the idea of maximal respect to the character of the park’s locality in the city centre for which it is designed. It is a complex of separate pavilions based on the floor plan of the existing build-up area of provisional assembled buildings, so-called likusáks. The concept of the project presupposes an interaction between education, culture and the public. Its realisation will significantly contribute to revitalise the neglected eastern part of the park on Kraví hora. The exclusively located area offers only a commercial use of the provisional built-up area, and even though it is situated in the wider city centre, it has not undergone a process of revitalisation yet. The joyless nature of the area with decrepit temporary objects contrasts dramatically with the surrounds of Kraví hora, being architectonically and socially highly attractive.

In the land marked industrial building dating from the last turn of century there are imprints of different eras. It can be compared to an archive layers of time. The building has served as ammunition factory, paint factory and presently as kunsthalle for contemporary art and architecture. The kunsthalle lies in an area with heavy, superannuated industrial buildings, more or less degenerated. This is a landscape that has been left, that is waiting to be demolished and integrated with the surrounding city. Until then, this place lives on its own terms.

This Centre of the Dramatic Arts presents itself to the city as a platform, as an urban stage with the city and landscape as backdrop.
The interior roofed patio, generated by a three-dimensional folding of the wooden surface of the roof, is conceived as a scenic box that opens up towards the city and affirms itself as the building’s spatial reference point, a place for relationships and interchange.

Re-structuring an old theatre of the 19th century in the heart of Paris to turn it into an interactive platform for 21st century music and arts poses a number of difficult problems. To sum them up we have conceived of a place that could cater to all the artistic activities of today, a place open to public visits but that was also a working studio where artists could actually create, produce and present.
