Unicorn Theatre, London

Anyone who is reading Hugh, will have seen this today. What a lovely looking building - really like the sharpness of it , especially in this elevation where the projected glazed box looks like it could cut you.

Absolutely, got a Glucksmann Gallery feel to it, except like you say probably sharper.
Not sure about the sign though...

was looking at this last week in the times. nice review by hugh.

i love this section. the main theatre hanging over the generous foyer is a great feature.

Yeah, most theatres would put the main box on the round level with the subsidiary theatre sonewhere in the gods. Nice arrangement.

I have heard from friends and read up a lot about the Unicorn Theatre, I love Architecture and my daughter loves Theatre so we are planning a trip to London in April just to see Bare the Pop Rock Opera. The building looks beautiful can't wait to see the inside!
