One half of this building is shaped a generous panorama terrace overlooking the Lake, while the other half is turned towards the city centre, as a giant screen and open air stage for events. The foyer is a cascade of spaces that connect the auditorium with the city and the panorama terrace overlooking the lake. All departments of the arts centre are organized as a gradually ascending mountain village. The different plateaus are linked by a system of stairs that rise up through the building, all the way to the top.
