|THE FLOATING THEATRE
The competition lists the foundation costs for 5 different locations
on the site - ranging from 27 to 64 million. Establishing the construction
site, draining grounds and piling are essentially money lost before
getting the first m2 of the theatre
We propose to erect the theatre from an 80x50m2 floating platform.
The platform can be constructed as a standard barge on a shipyard
at a fixed price, or cast in Nordhavnen like the Íresund tunnel elements.
The barge can then be towed to a convenient location where the rest
of the theatre can be erected. On opening day all of Copenhagen can
gather on the shore of KvŠsthus plaza to greet the Royal theatre as
it enters the harbor.
The hollow space of the barge accomodates 190 parking spaces for free.
All this can be constructed cheaper than the cost of conventional
