Josep Miàs | Herta Frankel Puppet TheatreThe historical building of Tibidabo Amusement Park has been occupied for years with different uses, having a much subdivided architecture, which hid the real complete space. Our intervention proposed the recovery of the whole original space, covered with cast iron pillars and lattice beams, and making it compatible with the incorporation of new spaces for public use.
