DROO Architects - Michel da Costa Gonçalves - Modern Theatres


MODERN THEATRES 1950-2020 which includes a contribution by DROO Architects’ director Michel da Costa Gonçalves is a fantastic book edited by David Staples and published by Routledge. Michel explores today’s perception of the Opera Bastille in light of its very political inception and using his past experience designing cultural venues such as the Onassis Opera in Athens or the Pompidou Art Museum in Metz. 

“Modern Theatres 1950 – 2020 is an investigation of theatres, concert halls, and opera houses in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North and South America. It explores in detail thirty of the most significant theatres that opened between 1950 and 2010. A further twenty theatres that opened between 2011 and 2020 are concisely reviewed and illustrated.”
