The subject of this diploma thesis is the result of the thoughts on the concept of the theatre as a kind of art, its social impact and the interaction between the theatrical function and the building typology. The aim of the design is a friendly outdoor place focusing on the new performing arts building in the city of Volos through which the people will be swept away and confronted with its imaginary reality, the theater.
The architectural composition was designed based on three components. In general, it was based on the study of the existence of the curve in the city and how it appears in shapes in the urban fabric, the relationship between the new structure and the existing urban situation considering the building of the Town Hall which is close enough, but also more specifically based on a narrative of hypothetical movements starring the audience and the people who work for the theatrical mechanism.
For the new theatrical complex, which includes the main body of the construction and inside there are the large performance hall and a smaller music hall as well an outdoor summer theater next door, the aim is to create a space that will be a natural extension of the outdoor stage that surrounds it so that a person who walks around there could feel intimacy with the theatrical space and art.
The architectural vocabulary of the curved elements is used for the realization of the design vision which aims at strengthening the central idea by creating a flowing path where during the crossing the walker the walker will be confronted with theatrical moments and will be transformed into a spectator.
