Imagine a theater made almost exclusively made of recycled paper and other recycled materials. That’s what Paris-based architecture and scenography practice Studio Andrew Todd did. Their design has been selected for exhibition at the 2013 World Stage Design event in Cardiff, opening in early September. The exterior scaffolding structure is used to erect and brace a massive wall of paper bales. The center oculus gets pulled up via cables and bamboo purlins are fixed at the top. A double layer of recycled circus tent roofing is then placed on top of the bamboo and the interior is finished with bamboo and cardboard with natural light streaming through the roof’s center. Should be very cool, not to mention sustainable.
