Saint Cyprien VTHR by Serero

Posted by ewanvfe on 28/04/2008

More from French architects Serero: this time their VTHR auditorium and theatre in Saint Cyprien, France.
The canopy design was the winning entry in a competition to design the new Auditorium et Salle Video Transmission Haute Resolution (VTHR).
See Serero’s competition-winning proposal to remodel the top of the Eiffel Tower in our earlier story.
The interior auditorium and cinema uses passive ventilation. Special panels combining wooden cladding and variable density insulation are used to achieve appropriate acoustics for both cinema and classical music performances. The complex shape of the interior is intended to reflect and diffuse the sound, creating an enveloping atmosphere.
