summer theater tribune

göbl architecture has designed, organized, and built a new tribune for the Vitamins of Society theater production in the Hoftheater Mathans in St. Ulrich im Greith (southwestern Styria). The specifications of organizer and director Wolfgang Lampl (a.k.a. Jimi Lend) were unambiguous: The tribune was not to cost anything, must comfortably seat 140 people, and provide an unimpeded view of the stage. Using a specially developed, modular, and efficient system using 201 EURO pallets and 72 scaffolding floors borrowed from local business for the duration of the summer theater season, the client’s specifications were met to a T. If needed, the system can be expanded in three directions (to the back and to either side). In only a day, the tribune was built (by the architects) and filled to capacity on opening night.
