This project was designed with the intent of attracting a bigger public and making the performative arts more accessible to everybody. The complex has approximately 41,000 m2 in size and is comprises three theaters: the lyric theater, the medium theater, and lastly the studio theater.

Each of the three theaters was built with different concepts in mind, depending on which performative art they cater to. All of them have different colors that are differently applied to each auditorium as well as to each of its correlating foyers. The fun part is that aside from the colors becoming helpful “wayfinders”, the intensity of the colors increases as the spectators come closer to the performing arts venues, reaching their hights as people enter inside the respective auditorium.
