Creative Practice: Aldo Rossi's Teatro del Mondo

Looking into people who have created 'floating' performance spaces. Simon mentioned the Italian Architect, Aldo Rossi and his Teatro del Mondo which he designed for the Venice Biennale in 1984. An interesting space but as pointed out, it isnt open air. The audience sits inside. I'd like the audience and musicians to be listening and performing out in the open

Actually, what I think I love the most about it, is the drawings Rossi produced. Reminds me very much of the style employed by another Italian architect, Antonio Sant'Elia. Wonderfully crude I'd say.
