Qatar National Convention Centre – Theatre Hall in Education City, Doha , Katar by Haver & Boecker

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

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.

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.

Article source: MDU Architetti

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.
