Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre

Just came across this building – Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre by architect Renato Rizzi. The building, which resembles a stadium, has a split roof – each flap weighing approx 46 tonnes – which opens by means of a hydraulic system and reveals the interior of the theatre to the sky outside.
