'delicious, theatrical and beautifully detailed'

Nissen Adams' competition-winning entry for a new theatre in Poland's Gdansk houses the theatre element in a solid brick facade but locates the foyer, restaurants and café in a structure that is more open to the city. The route between foyer and auditorium uses screen-printed metal, reflective glass and video screens to create a sensual experience that is deliberately disorientating. The auditorium itself is flexible and has a retractable lighting grid beneath an artificial sky.
