TEATRO DELLA LUCE
My third year final design project 'Teatro Della Luce' brought a theatre to the Piazza Della Pillotta in Parma, Italy. The Piazza was once a full courtyard, however following World War two the exposed corner was destroyed and never truly refilled. The site itself was once home to a glorious theatre which as of current is a museum. My project sought to bring a theatre back to this historical site. The theatre itself was constructed using similar traditional building materials to the existing site. However the materials were used in a contemporary manner and with contemporary styling. The theatre was unique in its reaction to the surroundings, during the summer months it could open up to allow the performance to expand into the surrounding public space. Below are the technical drawings which were part of my submission.
