TROPICAL AMPHITHEATER

Leisure & Entertainment Theater & Culture

The Amphitheater, located on Vietnam’s south coast, is a crucial element of a well-known resort and is linked to an entertainment zone that includes a casino, a water park, and other leisure activities. Our client’s primary request was that this new architecture should be seen as a landmark on the site, easily recognised by its distinct identity.

Our first thought was to create a performance space that does not look similar to a stadium or a large grandstand. We chose to design a tropical theater as part of the landscape in reference to the magnificent tropical garden in which it is located. We developed a complete vocabulary of architectural elements in reference to this floral environment, with the main element being a tensile membrane roof that resembles giant tropical flowers, intricate with real palm trees and other tropical essences growing on the facades.

The final outcome is stunning architecture that can evoke emotion and provide a magical experience for the audience from the moment they arrive until the show begins. The venue also turns into a new experience by night, with a spectacular dynamic lighting installation.

The Grand Ho Tram Strip Amphitheatre will be a one-of-a-kind full-coverage performance space in Vietnam, with a capacity of 3 200 spectators, 2 035 seats and a pit area for various standing audiences. We also placed a great deal of emphasis on the front-of-the-house area as part of the theater design, providing a place for pre-show time and community space. The audience is then invited to enter the auditorium zone through various levels of access to smooth the flux and avoid crowd sensation.

From a performance space point of view, the amphitheater is designed to provide maximum flexibility and optimize the installation for a wide range of shows and event types, making it an effective tool for daily events and performances.
