Theater buildings are, and always have been, a characteristic feature of the European city. It is they, above all else, which provide impulses for the regeneration of the city centres and the redevelopment of whole urban areas; they are indispensible identification points of urban communities. In that sense, good theater architecture is also shaping the future of our cities. Apart from demonstrating great competency in planning and building wellfunctioning cultural spaces through their designs and inventions around theatre architecture, pfp - architekten from Hamburg also show great sensitivity to urban space. Numerous photos and plans make their designs tangible to the last detail; essays by Dirk Baecker and Martina Low extend this architectural perspective into the sociological significance of theatre and theatre buildings.
