Maillon Theatre

The Maillon Theatre replaces the classic proscenium composition with a porous building composed of open spaces defined by its circulations.

The project attempts to redefine the typical limits: between theatre and city, between exterior and interior, between front and back, between the artists and public and between the disciplines. This ambition is spatially expressed through two founding principles: the void as a space of possibilities and the spatial flexibility aimed at the balance between what is stage and what is not. The architecture becomes an artistic machine designed to adapt to the most unusual scenarios.

This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
