The extension of the nineteenth century Perm State Tchaikovsky Opera and Ballet Theatre is conceived as a gently stepped podium forming a continuation of the park landscape. Two objects are floating above the podium, as sculptures in the Park, next to the existing theatre. One side houses the Rehearsal Studios in a vertical element, the other side houses the new theatre room in a horizontal element. By opening the rehearsal rooms, the foyer and the theatre room to the park, a multitude of theatrical possibilities within one single complex are offered. A revolutionary machine floor and ceiling makes several theatre settings possible. Allowing the new Theatre to host all kinds of contemporary theatre productions.
