Santa Barbara Bowl in California by HANDEL ARCHITECTS LLP

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Article source: HANDEL ARCHITECTS LLP

Originally built in 1935 by the Federally funded Works Progress Administration (WPA) program, this 4,500-seat outdoor amphitheater is located in a dramatic ravine overlooking Santa Barbara. It provides a full range of music shows, including classical, pop, country-western, blues, jazz and rock and roll. In the 1980’s, changing performance requirements, the impact of amplified sound and traffic, and increased residential density surrounding the amphitheater led the County Parks Department to undertake a master plan to address these challenges. Through an interactive community workshop process, Handel Architects was selected to lead a design team to create a detailed master plan to address each of the major issues. This master plan has served as a blueprint for all subsequent maintenance and operational endeavors, fundraising plans for capital improvements, and also served to minimize ad-hoc changes that had occurred in the past.

Article source: Haver & Boecker

Modern design with functionality and sustainability

The ceilings and walls inside the Qatar National Convention Centre are clad with 6,000 m² of architectural wire mesh made by Haver & Boecker. To meet the exclusive requirements of the room’s ambience, the designers chose bronze wire mesh. The high-quality aesthetic of the architectural mesh, as well as the excellent long-life properties, non-flammability, easy maintenance and recyclability, made choosing Haver & Boecker wire mesh an easy decision for the client.

Central Theatre Expo ‘92 in Sevilla, Spain by Arquitectos Ayala

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Ayala

Located on the river bank, on the site of the Exhibition, the theatre volume rises: one box inside another box. It is a pure volume, plated with natural stone, undressed, with no ornamentation, standing out on the vegetation of the bank. During the day, when the theatre is still dumb, the serenity and beauty of the geometric shape announce it existence, providing Seville with another myth in its look over the river.

New Public Theatre in Xàtiva, Spain by Arquitectos Ayala

Sunday, May 26th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Ayala

When this contest was announced, we went up to the Mont Sant, near the old fortress, to see the chosen plot from above. The large avenue called “Alameda” (or “Albereda” as it is called in Xativa) divides the old part of the city from the rest of the town. With a great difference of height between the “Albereda” and the back street (6m.) as the classical theatres were placed, the building was adapted to the different levels of the ground. At the back, there is the building of the music society.

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Article source: PES-Architects

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.
