ALA’s extension for the Kuopio City Theatre featured on archi.ru

The widely known Russian architecture online publication archi.ru has published an extensive review titled “Ready to Start” about the recent project by ALA Architects for the restoration and extension of Kuopio City Theatre. Architect Tarja Nurmi has paid several visits to Kuopio and carefully studied the renewed theatre from the perspectives of both the visiting audience and the professional challenges of contemporary theatre design. Nurmi writes appreciatively about the highly demanding task that ALA Architects have had with the modernist original from the 1960s.
