The Tyrol Festival Hall is a Geometrical Marvel in Austria

Designed by Delugan Meissl Associated Architects, this angular theater plays host to Austria's Tyrol Festival.

The building accompanies an existing 1950s Christian theater-turned-playhouse called Passionsspielhaus. Creating a sharp contrast, the ultra futuristic design appears to protrude form the spanning Austrian countryside. The monolithic construction's interior coincides with the modernist aesthetic of its asymmetrical facade. A minimalist lobby leads to the wooden auditorium that boasts a jagged ceiling playing with geometric contrast.

"Aside from the geometry, color also enhances the duality between old and new," explain the architects of their vision. Perhaps what makes this construction most interesting is the way that it complements its 50s counterpart by harmonizing both eras, a display that does justice to the Austria's Tyrol Festival.
