Architecture & Allied Arts
|Abstract:||Traditional Tunisian theatre peaked in popularity in the 1900's, really coming into it's own during the 1970's as new ideas were formed and new directions were taken. This fresh approach was something that didn't progress into the next century, and theatre is now something the Tunis culture is lacking. The 'New Age' Theatre aims to bring what was once a thriving form of entertainment in Tunis into the 21st Century through the use of architecture and design. The exterior form of the building is shaped by the dynamic uses of the theatre itself as well as some of the shapes seen in traditional Tunisian archtecture. Combining this with the use of modern and unusual (in Tunis) materials helps set the 'New Age' Theatre apart, whilst still keeping it linked to its geometric surroundings. The result is a dramatic building, perfect for bringing Theatre to the forefront of Tunis culture once again.|
