Barton College Studio Theatre in Wilson, North Carolina by Clark Nexsen

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Article source: Clark Nexsen

The Barton College Studio Theatre establishes a home for a burgeoning theater program at Barton College, a small liberal arts school in eastern North Carolina. Owing to its location on the campus, the theater creates two spaces: one fronts the campus’ iconic chapel, the other works in conjunction with the Fine Arts and Music Building to create an arts quad where theater patrons, actors, and students mingle before and after performances.

Finnish Design is internationally reknownfor its concepts of clear and functional style, which meet the needs of the users from a long term perspective.  The first large scale example of Finnish design in China was completed by the opening of the Wuxi Grand Theatre in April 2012.  Its design was not only a question of architecture, but the whole design- from functional program to interior design, landscape design, theatre technology, lighting and acoustic design – was controlled by the PES-Architects’ team.

Theatre de Saint-Nazaire in Paris, France by K-Architecture

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Article source: K-Architecture

The site on which the theatre is built has seen some glamorous times. In its days as a train station, it would welcome the rich socialites coming off the transatlantic liners. Opened in 1867, ten years after the Paris-Saint-Nazaire line started running, the station is a variation on Hausmannian neo-classicism, in the style of the Parisian stations.

Abandoned 1920s cabaret theatre discovered in Berlin, Germany by LAVA visualisations

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

Article source: Moritz Gruppe/LAVA

An old cabaret theatre from the roaring ’20s has been uncovered in the heart of Berlin.

The semi-derelict music hall theatre, built in 1905 on Gartenstraße in Berlin Mitte, has been buried in 30 tonnes of rubble since 1934 when it closed, perhaps as part of a  crackdown on the cabaret scene by the Nazi regime.

Tianjin Grand Theater in China by gmp Architekten

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Article source: gmp Architekten

The Grand Theater occupies the key position in the newly built Culture Park of Tianjin. The circular shape of the roof construction corresponds with the existing Museum of Natural History so that an architectural dialogue of an earth-bound and a “floating” circular volume is created to both ends of the park. Earth and sky represent a fundamental thinking in Chinese philosophy.

Open House BIC in Bangalore, India by Aetrangere

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Article source: Aetrangere

It is three decades since Indian cities like Bangalore have witnessed an urban transformation. An urgent growth is taking place around the country and the Urban and Rural are transforming dramatically. It is not only the consequence of globalization but also due to the giant economic shifts from the west to the east.

Our proposal seeks to show a unique path to allow a soft transition of values from urban to nature and from modernity to local culture. We seek to install a landmark image which catalyzes the potential of this central site in the emerging Bangalore.

Film Theatre Hilversum in Netherlands by Arc2 architecten & MOOST

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Article source:  Arc2 architecten & MOOST

The Film Theatre Hilversum consists of three cinemas. The glass frontage merges the foyer with the public space outside. The supporting frame is built in laminated wood, and organizes the foyer into a number of cosy niches where audience members can enjoy a drink before the film. The volume of the theatre nestles under a bend in a vehicle ramp. On this side its facade is opaque with a scaly cladding of fibre-cement sheeting.
