Anarchitecture theatre by Anarch; Kosovo

 

 

 

 

… I believe that life is perfect, because of its imperfections … building should reflect life in its imperfections to present perfect architecture …

Having visited anarchitecture Theatre, one cannot help but start to think about and question the meaning of the word Theatre’ a building or outdoor area in which plays, and other dramatic performances are given.

In the above description there is no mentioning of a performance before performance. At this Theatre It is literally that, the way interior spaces are designed one feels as if the performance has already started before you have even found the correct pathway to your seat.

 

 

 

The level of detail is mesmerising, and these details synergistically form a whole that continuously performs and entertains prior to the ‘’real’’ theatrical performance.

The material palette is all organic. Woods, bushes, ropes, bricks, are all sourced locally. Either reclaimed from the former industrial building, or foraged on the fields not far from the Theatre itself.

This is architecture and interior delicious feast, masterfully prepared and served to all the lucky visitors that will always get at least two performances for the price of one.
