Designed by Studio Libeskind, with McCauley Daye O’Connell Architects serving as Executive Architects, the theatre’s bold geometric form and pleated glazed façade transforms the theatre, and Grand Canal Square, into a functional stage for the city.
From its completion in 2010, theatre has served as the flagship symbol for the regeneration of the docklands, the lead character in a cast of architectural interventions across Grand Canal Square. The theatre’s bold architectural form offers a sustainable, mixed-use centrepiece for the continuity of Dublin’s cultural scene, as well as its urban growth.
Grand Canal Square
2100 seat capacity
The vision for the 2100-seat theatre was for a series of architectural stages: the stage of the theatre itself, the stage of the public square, and the stage of the
multi-level theatre lobby above the square.
