Text description provided by the architects. CJ azit is a theatre for rising artists to support their creative works and communication with audience. It’s studio type of atelier for diverse genres to perform (music, play, musical and etc.). Since the first opening date of 2009, it has been playing role as an art incubator. They have an incubating program named ‘Creative Minds’ at this renovated azit daehak-ro. It gives full support from artist training to contents development and production.

The concept is Culture-tainer (Culture+Container), meaning that it contains culture and artistic creation. We have planned transformable stage to enable diverse genres to perform within the space. With its module system, it can be redirected according to purpose of performances. The location of the seats can also be re-arranged.

To express its concept metaphorically with emotional values, we tried to push the limits of material usage beyond our imagination while maintaining the shape of container. Common area and walls in theatre are filled with light permeating through F.R.P. with simple and repetitive lines. The volume of light gives silent resonance. The lighting container box is hard but soft, bright yet dark.
