The pavilion is a repetition of this organization and thus gives it an additional meaning. the vertical arrangement of the elements allows for an introduction of optional modifications, a smooth transition between the spaces, the hierarchy of which is inviolable. disturbing the arrangement results in the spectator being led directly onto the stage and then moving on to the centre which is the entrance area. as a result of the layout, the meaning of the archetypal theater is ransformed and becomes open to everyday life.not the actors but the spectators become the subject of a spectacle. they do not have to go through a long initiation in order to
watch the play, it is the play that meets him/her halfway. the shapes that symbolize the individual volumes of the theater are hung on aluminum grids and create a flexible stage scenery for the events happening in the pavilion. the experience includes a sequence of events, assembling around the smallest rectangular cuboid (entrance area) and then proceeding to sit in the auditorium while the stage curtain (cylinder) comes down around them. the actors then gather in the outer area between the cylinder and the largest rectangular cube. after the curtain has risen, the spectator is surrounded by actors and the spectacle begins.
