Studio Andrew Todd is the design team behind this newly modelled Shakespearian amphitheatre located in Calais, France. The theatre is built entirely out of wood with a circular layout that takes inspiration from plays put on by the Bard in the Elizabethan times at the Globe Theatre.
The structure's overall aesthetic is a merging of French and English culture with a nod to ancient times when plays were performed in circular spaces. The curved design and tiered seating allows all audience members to have a great view of the performance. The theatre is located in a forested area and the use of bamboo and wood in the architecture complements the natural landscape. The theatre is enclosed thanks to a glazed roof and it also includes a staircase to the higher tiered seats.
