Nowy Teatr

The main idea behind the design of this theatre was to invert classical way of encapsulating it inside the building into open theatre interacting with the surrounding.

All the architectural decision were taken having in mind flexibility of the space, therefore they were narrowed down to create pure technical infrastructure. Rail network integrated with the square surface not only allows rearranging of this space but also changes the role of the square users. Modular elements when pushed on the rails lighten up. Interior space of the theater is formed by the movable curtain allowing for quick reconfiguration of scene and auditory at the same time making it possible to fully connect interior of the theatre with the exterior square.
