As the undulating mountains over the calm reflective water of the Leman Lake, the complex programs of this new development are organized as a synthesis of stepping surfaces rising on top of a pure horizontal plaza. This new theatrical playground provides an exciting gathering space for the public and people who lives and works here alike, to perform, to debate, to celebrate, to reflect or just to watch the surrounding landscape.
Each program remains its autonomy in terms of circulation and functionality within this compact site and tight geometry, even if they form a coherent entity based on the “theater" form. The site is finally transformed into a new landmark that connect the existing city to close suburbs and to the distant landscape: a social energizer for the town of Nyon.
