Throughout 2011, the network has worked with two students from the Ecole Superieure d'Architecture de Versailles, Maryline
Mallart and Marie-Caroline Thuillier, in order to establish an inventory of green open air theatres in France.
Until then no census of these elements of landscape and cultural heritage had been undertaken. No public source, nor any database included
reporting or referencing on this specific item and there was no historical study or publication on this topic.
Up to now this inventory has already identified 63 outstanding green open air theatres that you can discover in our
inventory sheet. If you would like to order one, don't hesitate to send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also discover many of them in our book of art, "Théâtres de Verdure", published in 2015 by the publisher
This work has contributed to develop "la base Mérimée" (the French heritage database created by the Ministry of
Culture and Communication).
The research of new theatres is constantly in progress in France and abroad, as new projects are today undertaken by architects and landscape
You can yourself make your contribution if you know sites that have not yet been identified!
