The new object has been created as a result of transformation of the old theater. Its beating heart has been taken out of destroyed shell.
The new building is the opposite of the old one – delicate, transparent, with visible mechanism – a functioning organism with its coat torn off.
Transformation of the new theater is a reflection of the relation between human and architecture. At daytimes the whole interior is visible through glass facades, while at night thanks to a thermosensitive system, it turns into a theater of colors.
Polymers covering glass react to electric impulses sent by cameras, that transform the image of interior and people inside, into colorful pattern. As a result the visitors have a direct influence on facades appearance. The system of three- dimensional visualisations enables creation of an interactive stage design, combining advantages of both theater and cinema.
