Nouvelle Comédie, GenevaSide-walls acoustic reflectors of the 300-seat black box, or multifunctional hall. An openwork complex made of fibre-reinforced concrete and perforated metal allows for visual uniformity of the various acoustic functions (diffuse reflection or absorption depending on the zone) and technical functions (Halfen mounting channels, very low speed HVAC air blowing, architectural lighting).
