Aberrant architecture - small coal man’s tiny travelling theatre
British design firm aberrant architecture has developed ‘small coal man’s tiny travelling theatre’. the brilliantly red structure was formed from aberrant architecture’s 21st century re-conceptualization of traveling coal salesman thomas britton’s 1678 mini-entertainment building for london. ‘small coal-man’s tiny traveling theater’ has been constructed in a manner very similar to its previous incarnation— a large sound funnel distributes musical entertainment occurring on the inside to gathered crowds around the exterior of the miniature auditorium. in the time of britton’s structure, amateur performers to symphony stars such as george frideric handel were said to serenade small crowds while hidden away from view.
