‘Theatre on the Parade’

The Theatre on the Parade is located in the heart of Den Bosch, adjacent to a large and lively public square (‘the Parade’) and near to the St. John’s Cathedral.

Alongside essential functional, regulatory and sustainable considerations, the location of the theatre calls for a highly contextual approach, however the architecture of UNStudio’s design places equal emphasis on the overall experience of the theatergoer and the public qualities of the project.

Reminiscent of geological formations, the composition of the volumes thwarts expectations of alignment and order, thereby arresting the gaze and accentuating perceptions of volumetric and spatial arrangements. The composition of offset yet interrelated and connected parts thus avoids an image of seamless fusion, instead alluding to the dynamics and drama of the theatre experience.
