The Grand Theater is not a building with a typical façade with wall and window surfaces, but is contained within a well-positioned curtain of frosted glass panels. The magazine Baumeister comments: “The light penetrating from the inside to the outside, as well as the reflection of sun, clouds, and water on the multilayered and staggered glass surfaces, present the building in ever-changing, mystical lighting moods.” In this volume, the responsible architects present the architectural design by means of texts, images, and plans. An essay by the architecture journalist Dirk Meyhöfer discusses the Grand Theater.
