La Gaîté Lyrique – a lyrical gaiety – perfectly captures the quintessence of the breathtaking new project by the award-winning Parisian practice Manuelle Gautrand Architecture. Located in the heart of the French capital on Rue Papin, the €83m redevelopment of the 19th-century Théâtre de la Gaîté is a state-of-the-art polestar for creative endeavour which, in the words of Gautrand: ‘provides, on a daily basis, a meeting point between technology, art and the public’.

An initiative of Mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoë and Deputy Mayor in charge of Cultural Affairs Christophe Girard, the renovation of La Gaîté Lyrique took eight years to complete and the 7-floor, 9,700-m2 building opened in March 2011 and now houses a multitude of cutting-edge facilities including music halls, multimedia and recording studios, resources centre and vast exhibition area.
