Grand Théâtre de Provence

Aix en Provence - Lieu culturel

In 2003 Vittorio Gregotti won first prize in the Pays d'Aix international competition for the construction of the Grand Théâtre de Provence.

Located in the new "Sextius Mirabeau" quarter, the Grand Théâtre de Provence has given impetus to a cultural renewal.

The building is Mediterranean in appearance, and is shaped like a cylinder closed in on itself from the top there is a superb view of the Sainte Victoire mountain.

The Grand Théâtre de Provence is also a social venue and has a restaurant and public areas designed to make the theatre a meeting-place in the heart of Aix en Provence.

The theatre also hosts the Aix-en-Provence Festival each summer, offering a programme of concerts and dance to lovers of art and culture.

The theatre's Italian architect, Vittorio Gregotti, was born in Novara in 1927.

In 1999 he founded his agency Gregotti Associati which set up Global Project Development, a company specialising in sustainable architectural development and design for countries with booming tourist industries, with the aim of preserving the environment.
