Выезд императора Петра II и цесаревны Елизаветы Петровны на охоту, Валентин Серов, 1900.
Last month Parisian Center for Digital Art and Contemporary Music opened its doors. Designed by architect Manual Gautrand inside a historical building constructed in 1862 and acting as a cultural theater house known as La Gaîté Lyrique. Before Gautrand start working on the project, the building went through a 14 year renovation in the 80s’ which layed the groundwork for it’s large renovation into the Centre for Digital and Contemporary Music.
Gautrand had the entire interior removed to make room for her concept of “box within a box”. There are three prominent rooms in the building core and are using an advanced sound insulation system completely self-sufficient.
