Description: 
Plan. This unrealized project by Walter Gropius for Erwin Piscator was one of the most impressive projects of the 20th century. It consisted of a variable theater space which would have been modified in accordance with the staging needs and intentions of the director. Three basic models were designed: a) an arena arrangement, b) a proscenium stage and c) a classic depth perspective theater.
