The challenges of the project
The contractor’s definition of the project is articulated around a close link between reshaping the Théâtre 95, outlining an urban morphology, and finding free spaces in the urban island.The theatre’s extension is framed by a dialectic vision of interactions between town and theatre: the theatre stretches beyond its limits while the town must find in it a porous space, a space of journeys, echoes, dreams, encounters and everyday life, devoted to contemporary modes of expression and deliberately placed at the very heart of the town.

There was, from the beginning, the intent to work this project as a machine, a TIME CAPTURING MACHINE. This condition was naturally the result of the place, the context and the industrial spirit, that penetrated the imagination. Condition to which it was added the will to capture, within the project, time and its flow. A flow of time and light into the spaces that would say – the architecture captures time, architecture captures the flow of time.

The Albi Grand Theatre is going to transform the texture of the city as well as its cultural influence.
This building appears as an outstanding architectural symbol, on the outskirts of the historic centre.
We have given priority to the presence of the Grand Theatre instead of the cinemas, in order to organize around it a network of public spaces and of cultural facilities. The Grand Theatre will be its centre.
