Project: 2012-2013

Open air theatre

Dimensional data:  4.600 seats and 8.100 standing places 7.554

Embedded in the ground, the open air theater is a large earthwork that blends an outdoor green square with a theater parterre, all located within a 5% inclined slope. The green entry area acts as an outdoor public space, the parterre has concrete benches and the two side wings have stepped seats. The stage is sided by two enclosed volumes that host the changing rooms for actors and technical spaces. It is covered by a lattice structure that holds a flat roof all covered by photovoltaic panels. This light tree structure is the only vertical element emerging in the expo skyline.
