location Lelystad
function congress centre, theatre
contributed by MI_MOA

The new Agora Theatre is part of the Master plan for the city center of Lelystad and will play an important role both day- and nightime in this area with clustering of cultural and social activities. This iconic building has a sculptural effect during the day, and after sunset a glowing impact. Arup Lighting has been asked to design the interior and exterior lighting for the new theatre. Transition, movement and metamorphosis play an important role. The colours used in the building originate from photographs of the sky above Lelystad. The exterior colour was distilled from photographs taken during sunset, whilst the blue found in the interior originates from a cloudless sky. Light falling on the various surfaces conveys the impression of constantly changing colours and forms. The grand café, also open during the day, connects to the evening square. The vertical foyer, which swings through the entire building, connects different theatre and congress halls on the different floors.
