The black-boxes are the most efficient way to provide flexibility in such performing space .  

By arranging these black-boxes in a loose way, corner to corner, we create spaces in between : they can be used as walled gardens . In the summer time, the visitors can enjoy the outdoor space during the intervals of a play . 

In order to improved the sound quality of the theater, the entire building is surrounded by an enclosed belt, which acts as a noise barrier for the inside performing place . 

This belt is composed of two cofunctions, the upper floors are offices and the groundfloor is dedicated to circulation spaces for the different theater’s rooms . This is totally transparent, from the Piazza to the walled gardens, creating curiosity for visitors passing by.
