image by peter cookthe curve theatre in leicester is the first building in the UK by rafael vinoly architects. the new building turns the typical theatre configuration inside out, putting the backstage operations on show. through the clear glass faced, the public is free to look at the theatre building up productions, involving them in the process. the glass facade is also covered with a louvered curtain wall that covers the building’s four stories. the two auditorium spaces are also visible from the outside, conceived as islands within the public foyer around them. the offices and other facilities are all located in an l-shaped wing at the back, containing all the spaces in a more private setting. the theatre also has a cafe on the ground level that is open outside performance hours
