contributed by AlucobondEurope

The city of Albi has opened the doors of the new Grand Théatre to the public. The building is the result of an extensive program to restructure and enlarge the Cordeliers district. Main issue of the planning was the erection of a culture and congress centre with a cinema complex and underground parking. For the cladding of the façade Dominique Perrault Architecture chose ALUCOBOND spectra® in combination with a metal canvas. The ALUCOBOND® panels, which throw different colours back to the passer-by depending on viewing angle and light incidence. The tinted glass windows with very high thermal and acoustical performance break the daylight smoothly into the large entrance area. The façade creates a play of orange and copper colours like a sonny autumn day. In addition the building got a tailor-made copper metal mesh. The comparison to French Haute Couture is obvious: the combination of ALUCOBOND® and metal mesh conveys elegance and suppleness the architectural ensemble.
