Project Description:

It is a 344,445 sq ft complex of two theaters for experimental and commercial performances and a multi-use “blackbox” that holds up to 400 people. The project is composed by three volumes and a platform/public square, that acts as a transitional element between the different buildings. The project becomes a “detour”, a way of multiplying paths throughout the University’s Cultural Center. The site is occupied through the use of platforms, voids and terraces, as well as the position of the theaters – which open up to public space- allowing the whole esplanade to become a theatrical space; generating the possibility for inner and outer scenic spaces that interact between inside and outside.
