The building was built on the basis of a project jointly worked by experts from the architectural firm Norman Foster and Thomas Hearthwick’s design studio.

The mechanical system allows you to slide and slide out the tubes, giving the façade a dynamic character. Depending on your needs, they reveal, for example, a balcony, serving as a scene.

Architects have defined their concept as a ‘mobile veil’ that adapts to changing building applications.

This, apart from fulfilling the role of theater, serves, among others. Also as an exhibition center (one of the exhibition halls is on the roof). Fantastic visual impression is also provided by the material itself, through which the building looks like a jewel.
