14. Theatrics

My next studio project is designing an outdoor theatre in a parking lot at King and Adelaide. It seems extra difficult because there aren't any parameters. I thought I'd share some of my favourite theatres from a previous project.

Oslo Opera House by Snøhetta

Valencia Opera House by Santiago Calatrava

And my absolute favourite, the Copenhagen Opera House by Henning Larsen
And here are two open air pavilions I've found. I like the first one especially.

The Tyhume Valley Theatre by Ryder Architecture
The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion by Frank Gehry
