A performing art program center is not only designed to offer the most beautiful case to creators of shows. Building this program can itself be a performance. Contemporary architecture goes beyond conceptual concerns or generation of forms, but in the extension of possibilities, even their diversifications. It’s about offering an infinity of means rather than a frozen narcissistic plastic work.

By the multiple configurations that it can take or reveal. The project can invest the whole island to become a mechanical ballet, and ultimately become part of the show itself.
