Square Stadsschouwburg Antwerpen
Studio Associato Secchi-Vigano (Milan, Italy) was invited to prepare a draft of the Theater Square and its surroundings. The design runs from wall to wall and is characterized by three distinctive features: transparent canopy structure, eliminating the difference in street level between the building of the theatre and thirdly the square with the "modern garden". The canopy structure and the garden provide the uniqueness of the new Theater Square and bring the square back "to scale" and in relation to the built environment. With these changes the square obtained it a better and more qualitative and aesthetic appearance. The "modern garden" is a more green space, with enough trees and space to linger. The lifting of the level between the theater and public space increases the convenience and accessibility.
