Grand Theatre des Cordeliers

Location: Albi France
Architect: Dominique Perrault
Date: 2014
Project Type: Public Buildings and Arts
Size/Scope of Project: 36 panels, 52,000 ft²
Custom "Golden" Anodized Escale

The three-dimensional shell made of a custom anodized aluminum mesh encapsulates the streamlined geometry of the compact theatre building in a warm golden color. This specially developed Escale spiral mesh transforms the concave skin into a shimmering sail. The sun and sight protection screen is semi-transparent during the day while acting as a virtually invisible veil, granting a view into the world of theatre when backlit at night.
