Haute couture made from metallic mesh

In the south-west of France, 80 kilometres north-east of Toulouse, lies Albi, also known as la ville rouge derived from its characteristic brick buildings. The picturesque old town with its famous cathedral of Sainte-Cécile now offers yet another attraction: As part of an extensive urban regeneration project, French star architect Dominique Perrault has built the Grand Théâtre des Cordeliers at the fringe of the historic town centre.

Besides a 900-seat theatre and an experimental hall with a further 250 seats, the 30,000 square metre complex also houses a cinema with eight screens, an underground car park, restaurants, administration and congress rooms. The dominating element of this construction is the Grand Théâtre, whose three-dimensional façade of gold-coloured anodised aluminium mesh has become a new landmark of the picturesque town. During the day, the semi-transparent golden skin encloses the compact, plain building like an inflated sail. At night, when the building is lit from the inside, it takes on a mystical appearance. The spectacular construction of the woven membrane was made possible by specially developed Escale spiral mesh manufactured by the world’s leading technical weaving operation, GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG.
