In order to emphasize the public nature of the art center, the project presents itself as a series of cuts of an original spherical volume that are tilted to allow pedestrians to cross freely through the public space upon which the building sits. In addition to distinguishing the various programmatic elements of the project, this translation movement follows and connects to an existing public building axis.

Article source: Les Architectes Fabg

The new building of Théâtre la Licorne like the theater company that runs it , La Manufacture, has a strong bond with its surrounding area. It tends to communicate with the city and reflects the type of theater that it produces: straightforward and urban. Aesthetic choices made during the design phase also reflects the idea of “manufacture”: Simplicity of form and the use of raw materials: glass, metal, concrete, brick… Apparent structure, ventilation ducts and plumbing. Elements borrowed from industrial buildings: cable trays, concrete floors.

Dee and Charles Wyly Theater in Dallas, Texas by REX/OMA

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

Article source: REX/OMA

The Dallas Theater Center (DTC) is known for its innovative work, the result of its leadership’s constant experimentation and the provisional nature of its long-time home. DTC was housed in the Arts District Theater, a dilapidated metal shed that freed its resident companies from the limitations imposed by a fixed-stage configuration and the need to avoid harming expensive interior finishes. The directors who worked there constantly challenged the traditional conventions of theater and often reconfigured the form of the stage to fit their artistic visions. As a result, the Arts District Theater was renowned as the most flexible theater in America. The costs of constantly reconfiguring its stage, however, became a financial burden and eventually DTC permanently fixed its stage into a “thrust-cenium.”

Toneelschuur in Haarlem, The Netherlands by Mecanoo Architects

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Article source: Mecanoo Architects

A new home

The ‘Toneelschuur’ in Haarlem is a trend-setting firm for the Dutch theatre, dance and movie industries. Each year prominent international theatre and modern dance companies perform in the two theatre halls. The latest movies can be seen in the cinema. Commissioned by the Toneelschuur, cartoonist Joost Swarte made a sketch design for ‘a new home for the Toneelschuur’. This sketch design was a study of the possibilities for moving the theatre to a new location in the intricate fabric of the historical centre of Haarlem. In the design the different functions of the theatre complex are located in different building parts. The new building is dominated by an inclined glass front. This glass wall separates the building from the city, simultaneously creating a mutual connection. Mecanoo developed the sketch design for the new Toneelschuur in collaboration with Joost Swarte.
